Amphitheater House, Mérida
Emerita: Roman city in western Spain, modern
Mérida, capital of the province
Directly outside the walls of Augusta Emerita
was the group of buildings that is collectively known as the
Amphitheater House. They were excavated in 1947, and include a part of
the city wall, of the San Lázaro aqueduct
and a water tower, two houses, and a mausoleum. One of the houses,
built in the fist century and discovered in 1992, contained some
beautiful mosaics of fish and a wine harvest.
