Street and the Marble Road is known as
the brothel, because in the excavations,
a statue of Priapus with an oversize phallus
was found in the house. The statue is
now presented in Ephesus Museum.

to the Trajan (98-117 A.D.) It has two
entrances, one from the Marble Road and
one from the Curetes Street. It has a

floor there are number of small rooms.
On the west side of the house there is

on the floor, symbolizing the four season.
The chamber next to it is the bath of
the house with an elliptical pool. On
the floor of the pool, there is a mosaic
describing three women eating and drinking,
a waitress standing, a mouse and a cat
