ARGOS - 2005
Type of Operation
Argos, Stadiou Street (property of A. Yakoumaki). E. Sarri (Δ’ ΕΠΚΑ) reports the discovery of the western part of a Late Roman-Early Christian bath on a plot which lies 250m south of the baths east and north of the area of the ancient theatre and agora, and 100m north of the south arm of the city wall.
The area investigated contained the underground heating chambers for the caldarium or other internal warm rooms and the bathing areas beside them. These rooms were heated by two praefurnia, and preserve their terracotta cladding and the columns supporting the floor (suspensura) above. The bath was set within an insula bounded to the north by a cobbled street running east-west, with a water channel covered by stone slabs along it. North of the road was a Late Hellenistic funerary peribolos containing built cist tombs.
