Identified by the statues of the owners, this is one of a few mansions still partly standing at the foot of Mt Kynthos

This ruined mansion from 2 and 1 first century A.D. has the statues of it,s owners . The famous egyptian ruler only shares her first name with the lady of this house, Cleopatra was a common first name in ancient Greece meaning joy of the father. It,s near the house of dionysos and the house of the trident.

It was so interesting to learn that first off, there were more than one cleopatra in antiquity. I was amazing to see a structure still standing some 6 millennia ago.

Our guide informed us that Cleopatra is a Greek name 'Cleo' = joy and 'patra' = father. This is the only house on the island where the residents can be identified as they had statues built of themselves and their names inscribed so that all the passers-by could see how wealthy and beautiful they were. There is so much history... More

Cleopatra was no an uncommon name. That she lived here is documented on the statue. Visit here and the other columns that mark the homes of the wealthier resident.s

An impressive remains of a house that is best remembered for the remains of the exquisite statues of the former owners that stand. This is not the the dwelling of the more famous Cleopatra of history but it is a very credible example of life in DELOS.

One of the highlights of the residential side of the ruins. Definitely worth a photo-op or two, at the very least!

This particularly beautiful house is the only one on Delos whose owners are known. The two erected statues of themselves in the entry of their home with inscriptions identifying them as Cleopatra and her husband Disocurides. They were wealthy Athenians from the Demos of Myrrinous in Attica. The original statues are in the museum on Delos; copies can be seen... More

When our cruise ship anchored at Mykonos, we particularly wanted to see the ruins at Delos. The only way to do that was the ship’s tour, since we anchored at 2:30 PM and the public excursion boats only go to Delos in the morning. The tour turned out to be excellent. Delos was the site of a bustling center of... More
