The eastern quarter of the town

A large villa with a roomy bath, two atriums, a spacious banquet hall, a series of shops etc, is under excavation to the east of the town. The villa has been endowed with a wonderful mosaic pavement showing the triumphal epiphany of Dionysus. This central theme is framed by six smaller panels decorated with theatrical masks. Four statues of philosophers have been discovered in the same room, while in another, smaller one with a niche, the statue of the venerated god Dionysus was found.
