Large building Roman baths (1st century AD)
Many rooms on the western side of the bath are conserved, together with a large portico which stretches to the road known as Frontius Street. The outer walls are built of large limestone blocks, while the internal structures are built of smaller blocks with an infill of earth and stones. The complex was badly damaged by an earthquake in the second half of the 4th century AD. In the 10th century moch of the area was occupied with houses, built to a very simple plan, arranged along a lane. Inside the building, between the 11th and 12th centuries, an olive press was installed, remains of which include a large stone tank, a small tank adapted from a sarcophagus and the counterweight for the press.
