The most important feature of this building are the unique mosiacs which cover an enormous area. In one area there is a row of ten masks representing typical characters from the New Comedy, much in vogue during that period. Hence the name of the house.

One of two dissapointments on Delos. The house has 4 rooms with fantastic mosaic floor and some left over plaster paintings on the walls, but it is not being taken care off! The floors are full of dust so you cannot see the mosaics and...More

Nice architecture, part of a whole that is amazing. The house itself cannot be visited inside, but is worth taking a detailed look around.

Ask most tourists who visited Delos and a number would not have encountered this place! Why? Because they turn back before they reach this place. Yet, this place should not be missed! The mosaics of this place is amazing! One gets an idea of how...More

Not only is the flooring and design impressive but this building had indoor plumbing. An amazing accomplishment.

Just beyond the theatre, this is one of a group of ruined mansions in Delos. It is worth seeking out to see the ancient mosaics.

Many tours go no further than the theater, but this is just beyond the theater. You can pass it and not realize you missed it. Get a good map. Some of the best mosaics are here.

The house is very impressive, with the ancient masks still being where they have been for thousands of years. There is a fence around the house so that you cannot actually enter the house. You get a good impression of it though, and you can...More
