English Text:

The Roman bathing facility should be located at the site of an earlier, Hellenistic gymnasium. Four bathing rooms at the northern side were partly hewn out of the bedrock. The caldarium (hot room) lying to the west possessed seven niches furnished with bathing pools. To the west and south, colonnades with mosaic floors were adjoined; these served as recreation rooms and lobby halls. Presumably a palaestra (exercise area) exists in the unexcavated terrain to the south, which would have served for physical exercise as well as mental activities.
