Roman National Museum - Baths of Diocletian
About the Baths of Diocletian
The Baths of Diocletian served as a public bathing area for the people of Rome. Building works started in 298 under Maximiam, and were completed in the early 300’s under Constantius. These Baths were the largest imperial baths ever built, with two types of baths: the Frigidarium – for cold baths, and the Caldarium – for hot baths. During the Gothic War in the early 500’s, the Ostrogoths severed the water supply to the baths rendering them unusable.
