Landscape with a bridge, in the Milios house
Eratyra, 1860-1900

A typical example of the mansions of Eratyra is that of Milios on the north side of town. Its wall-paintings, which date from the mid-19th century, are concentrated in one room on the upper floor and extend like a frieze below the ceiling.

They portray animal and human figures as well as buildings in a landscape. The military costumes worn by the people and the apparent sequence of the paintings indicate that the scenes may tell a story, possibly one connected with the events of the period.
