The Roman Baths Nearby

The Roman Amphitheatre Kom El Dikka. The Roman Baths Nearby, to the north of the Roman theater, are the remains of a once elaborate public bath. Probably dating from the fourth century CE, this website remained in steady use until the seventh century. Resembling conventional Roman baths in design, the unique construction was created from pink bricks best for retaining heat and had a row of rooms. In its initial design the baths housed swimming pools of cold and warm water . Following the renovation in 535 CE, furnaces were used to create steam rooms as well as sections featuring both cold and warm baths.

The halls are 5.5 by eleven meters in measurement, with three rows of benches, and have a semicircular wall with a stepped podium on the farthest end from the door. The distinctive Alexandria n design of those halls with their stone benches signifies that they could have been used as classrooms. Therefore, it has been suggested that the so – known as Roman theater may very well have been used for holding meetings and symposiums in this Byzantine academy. The theatre has seating, elevated in direction of the rear half, within the shape of a horseshoe.
