The public baths



The public baths (or thermae), very close to the forum, can very likely be dated to the beginning of our era.  Only part of the thermal complex to the north-west of the cryptoportico has been found.  The excavations have revealed the hot bath (caldarium), the cold bath (frigidarium) and the tepidarium which provided a transition between the two with its heated floor decorated with a mosaic of geometrical motifs, now in the Museum.

The thermae were indispensable to the social life of a Roman or Romanised town and provided relaxation, a meeting place and body care.  Although they were frequented both by men and by women, there were separate establishments or different times of access.
