The Dionysus Villa in Dion in Macedonia (Greece) is a sprawling, luxurious private residence dating to the 2nd century CE. The villa complex was originally built with five interconnecting tetrastyle courtyards and atrium gardens. It was modified in the 3rd century CE to divide it into three connected villas. The complex of buildings includes a bathhouse, shrine to Dionysus, shops, and an array of domestic rooms.
