The Surgeon’s House (Domus Del Chirurgo)– Rimini

The Surgeon’s House” is an important archaeological complex, situated in Piazza Ferrari, was discovered in 1989 and presented to the city of Rimini after 18 years of excavation and conservation activities.
The archaeological area covering more than 700 square metres includes many different building elements, among which the most interesting is the so-called Surgeon’s House (Domus) . This was a residential building of the Roman period , built during the second half of the 2nd century A.D. The large number of unearthed remains and mosaics are of great interest. Well preserved, the remains have allowed a true reconstruction of the House, its owner and its long and fascinating history. The Surgeon’s House has its rooms decorated with mosaic floorings and with polychrome frescoes. The owner of the House was a doctor named Eutyches. The most important find unearthed in the house is a remarkable collection of 150 surgical items. On the basis of the excavation data it has been possible to define the identity of the owner of the House: a military doctor, probably coming from Greece. The House was destroyed by a fire shortly after the middle of the 3rd century during raids by Germanic tribes
