'Winter'
Siatista, Lioutaris mansion,
middle of the 19th century

The Lioutaris (or Kariofilis) mansion is in the Yerania district. Although its exact construction date is unknown, it must have been built around the middle of the 19th century. The painting decoration in the interior contains several neoclassical features.

Apart from the portrayal of Constantinople, which is less realistic than the renderings of the city in the Poulko and Keratzis mansions, the wall-paintings depict the four seasons and the allegorical figures of night and day. They are the work of Christodoulos Zographou, a painter from Siatista.
