House of Aion

Welcome to the House of Aion – where there are few mosaics (compared to The House of Dionysus) but many myths!

Sure, these mythological tales might not be new to you (let’s be honest, who hasn’t heard of Aphrodite and Adonis?), but what you might not know is that these mosaics were created during a time of great transition – when Christianity was on the rise and the pagan age was coming to an end.

These works of art were likely an attempt by believers in the old gods to hold onto their traditions and convince others to do the same.

And while we can’t say if it worked, we can certainly appreciate the effort.

But enough with the history lesson – let’s talk about the good stuff.

The mosaics here are undeniably beautiful, telling stories that have captivated people for centuries.

And if you’re curious about the deeper meaning behind these tales, fear not – explanations are readily available in the lists.

So whether you’re a die-hard fan of ancient mythology or appreciate some seriously stunning artwork, the House of Aion is worth a visit.

Who knows – you might even find yourself inspired to create your own art!
