Bulla Regia was one of the most extraordinary towns in the Roman empire. To avoid the extreme heat, most of the villas were built underground - troglodyte fashion - hence there is little to see above ground.
Many of the villas have retained their mosaic floors in situ.
The house of Amphitrite is one of the best preserved underground villas.
Amphitrite was the wife / consort of the sea god Poseidon. Here she is being attended to by two slaves with lobster attributes.
Some of the lead pipe work was still in place for this underground fountain.
