Early Byzantine Public Baths

Administrator

print preview

Early Byzantine Public Baths have been revealed in various locations at the historical centre of city. Entire complexes have been preserved in a very good condition at the Square Mplanas and at the Square Lamproulis.

The bath at Square Mplanas is constituted by three single spaces and it is dated at 5th century A.D. Its size and its adjacency with the Basilica at Kiprou Street encourages its cross-correlation with the ecclesiastical architectural complex of the Basilica. It is speculated that it ceased its functions afterwards it was constructed the Early Byzantine fortification.

The bath at Square Lamproulis is found north-easternly to the Basilica of Saint Achillios and it is likely to be included under the wider architectonic complex of buildings which is related with Basilica. It is a small bath with two single spaces and it’s dated at 6th century A.D.
