of the Labyrinth
This noble house, that dates back to the Samnite period,
has two atria and a large peristyle. The name derives from a mosaic
which portrays the Fight between Theseus
and the Minotaur in the Labyrinth. The sumptuous main hall
is of the type described by Vitruvius as oecus
corinthius; it has ten columns leaning against the walls
that stress the spatial effect of architectonic paintings. The house
had private baths and a bakery equipped with three millstones.
