Roman Villa

Location: Skala   

The Roman Villa in Skala, Kefalonia: At the edge of Skala village, there are the remains of a Roman villa. According to the evidences, this villa was constructed in the 3rd century AD and belonged to a wealthy Roman. On the floor it has interesting mosaics. One of these mosaics depicts an altar with a sacrificial bull, while a man is about to kill him. Another mosaic shows the god Envy attacked and eaten by four wild animals: lion, tiger, panther and leopard.

In the early Christian times, a church was constructed over part of the villa. This ancient site is small and a short walkway has been constructed along it for visitors. The villa was discovered by accident in 1944 by the owner of the land. Excavations started in 1957.
