bath

Alternativ: termae; frigidarium; caldarium; tepidarium; sudarium; praefurnium

The bath (Lat. balneum) was usually somewhat separated from the living area of an estate, a military installation, or a civil settlement and located near a stream or a spring. The complex consisting of several rooms was divided into a frigidarium (cold water), tepidarium (lukewarm water), and caldarium (hot water). The bathing culture was an important part of Roman life. There were both public and private baths.
