The fourth set in the series of the Cyprus euro coin sets dedicated to the mosaics of Paphos which are included in UNESCO's World Heritage list.
These mosaics decorated the floors of the houses of wealthy residents in the Roman period in Cyprus (58 BC - 330 AD). They depict themes mainly from Greek mythology. The figures most prominently depicted on the mosaic floors have given their names to the house remains - House of Dionysos, House of Aion, Villa of Theseus and the House of Orpheus.
This set presents mosaics from the House of Aion. The mosaics from the "House of Aion" are regarded as of the finest artistic quality and characterize the renaissance in the art of the first half of the 4th century AD.
