The Baths II
During the III cent. A.D., evidently due to an increase in attendance, the Baths were expanded with construction of a new adjacent building to the North of the first one, built on higher ground (fig. 1).
From an ample entrance courtyard, of which only the foundations remain, you entered the frigidarium which had two baths for immersion in cold water (figs. 2-4).
From this wide space you moved through the tepidarium to reach the two calidaria, in one of which was the bath for hot water ablutions (fig. 5).
Next to the calidaria, the service areas with ovens.
We do not know how Baths II were connected to Baths I, as the small space with stairs left was adapted and modified in a later period (fig. 6).
