English summary: Terrace House 2 in Ephesos is one of the best-preserved ancient houses in the eastern Mediterranean. This large insula contains seven multi-storied peristyle type dwellings. The privileged status of the inhabitants is apparent due to the central location of Terrace House 2 on Curetes Street, a main thoroughfare and processional route in the city. The publication of Dwelling Unit 7 adheres to the publication concept of the Ephesian Terrace Houses and provides a detailed description of the architecture, the reconstruction of the building periods, the water supply and drainage, the marble decor of walls and floors, the wall paintings, stucco work, mosaics, sculpture, small finds, ceramic, glass and coin finds, as well as the analysis of the archaeozoological and archaeobotanical remains. Also taken into consideration are the numerous graffiti on the wall paintings which provide direct insight into everyday life. Furthermore, the publication includes an analysis of the area's "pre-use" in the late Hellenistic period and of its "post-use" in the early Byzantine period.
