The Roman House

 

Discovered in 2008, following a looting, the house had many mosaic floors with geometric patterns, only two fragments of mosaics panels remained on site. The beautiful figurative panel of mosaic is exposed today in the museum of Aleppo. On the walls of some rooms remains of wall paintings were found and restored. The house dates from the late second - early third century. In 2010, the exterior walls of the house have been rebuilt to preserve an open space illustrating the various phases of excavations and occupations of a Roman house with its decorative feature.

FUNDED BY THE WORLD MONUMENTS FUND - WILSON FOUNDATION

This project of restoration was undertaken in 2010.
