Located next to the convent of the Redemptorists Fathers, known as Domus of the Mosaic, it was built between I and IV centuries AD. Reserved to higher social groups, this building consisted of one floor and several rooms arranged around several courtyards, the most important of which was the oecus or guest room, where there is a mosaic pavement (end of the century II) representing two scenes: an allegory of autumn and the myth of Orpheus.
