Regio VI

House 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.
