Baths of Faustina

The construction of these baths (161-180 A.D.), one of the bost remarkable buildings in Miletus, was made possible by money donated by Faustina, the wife of the Roman Emperor, Marcus Aurelius.

Parts of this colossal building of brick and dressed stone blocks are still standing. One of the most remarkable features is the palaestra, the imposing remains of which lie immediately adjacent to the baths themselves. Beside the pool in one of the cool rooms (frigidaria) is a statue of Meandros, the river god.

On the east is the hot room (caldarium) with walls reaching a height of 15 m. There is another frigidarium on the south, together with a dressing-room, or apodyterium. A stoa extends along the other side of the street.
