The house of Dionysus stands out from afar with huge marble columns that extend over the walls.The most famous part of the house is the super emblem in the center of the mosaic floor in the courtyard, which is one of the most exquisite creations of Hellenistic mosaic decoration. The overwhelming god Dionysos with wide open wings wreathed with ivy, on a tiger,which is also carrying a wreath with vines and grapes around its neck . In his right hand the god is holding the thyrsus like spear adorned with ribbons. On the floor, among the plants,there is a beetle,a wine utensil,all of which are symbols of the God of Wine who is shown here probably on his journey from India.
