It is wonderful to see such stunning houses of the wealthy people more than 2000 years ago! The statues in the house are, however, mere replicas now since the original is presently housed in the museum. Check it out and be amazed by the structure and proceed to the museum to admire the original statues!

The ruins of a mansion situated in the theater 'district' of Delos is a structure from the 2nd century BC. The home is said to be of a wealthy Athenian couple of that era, so do not be misled by the name of the house (and the statue named after the Egyptian Cleopatra). It is a fascinating island treasure trove... More

Don't be misled by the name 'Cleopatra.' It was a very popular name during the time of the great queen. A 'Cleopatra' was said to be the joy of her father. This particular Cleopatra must have been a powerful woman according to our guide, because her name is mentioned first in the inscription under the statues still standing in the... More

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!
