The Author proposes, while emphasizing thedifficulty of reinterpreting an old excavation, a functionalanalysis of a Himerean house which has been excavatedin 1972. Noting that at Himera there is not a typicalhouse plan, he begins with the description of structuresand materials from House VI 5 and proposes a sociologicaland economical interpretation of their domestic use.House VI 5 is one of the largest houses in the city in thefifth century B.C. consisting of three parts (one for storage,a public place, and a private one) and attests thatHimereans knew and used new domestic patterns frommetropolitan Greece, in particular in Athens, and wereactively involved in spreading cultural Greek models.
