The House of Peristeria is one of the largest buildings from the 4th century discovered at Stobi. This mansion has a central peristyle and many different rooms around it. The name of the family Peristeria is written on the mosaic in one of the two triclinia. A female member of this family is donor of a part from the mosaic in the Old Episcopal Basilica. The trenches in 2005 were put in couple of different rooms of the house. The northwest triclinium is located in the center of the house with an apse on the west side and entrances at the north and the east. The first excavations of this area were done in the ‘70s. In 2005 the whole room was excavated to the bedrock. The wall foundations were documented as well as the bedding for the floor. The floor is paved with sandstone slabs. Sherds of kitchen vessels from the 4th – 5th century and fragments of an amphora, a lamp and a molded bowl from the 2nd century BC were discovered. 4 coins were also found. Three of them belong to the 4th – 5th century while one of them is from the 2nd century BC. Room 1 is in the south part of the house. On the west side it has entrance connected with the peristyle and on the east side there is an exit to the Via Principalis Inferior. A pit filled with ash was found in the north part of the room. In the south part, below the floor there were remains from older buildings dating from the 2nd – 1st century BC.
