Abstract from the Hellenistic and Roman baths Catalogue111 Name
Name of the site (ancient/modern); if applicable, name of the baths as common in literature
Catalog number 1.
Urban context if known; GPS coordinates to facilitate locating the building, particularly in Egypt; if the precise coordinates of the building are unknown, those of the site are given.
Assessment is based primarily on firsthand examination (see above) or on the literature; it is also indicated whether baths have been completely excavated, noting if this work has been undertaken recently, or if they are currently being excavated/reexamined.
In square m, all measurements are indicated with the inclusion of outer walls unless otherwise indicated; most are approximate, based on a reconstruction of roughly rectangular shape, although many examples, particularly the incompletely excavated ones, in reality have irregular perimeters; â€œat leastâ€? indicates the minimum size of baths that are not fully excavated or known.
Always date/century BC, unless otherwise noted; a-c are mentioned only when known: a) construction date; b) remodeling/ building phases; often, only general remodeling can be indicated; where possible, remodeling measures are ascribed to distinct phases, and phases may be subdivided into I, II, III, etc.; in this case, I refers to the first remodeling phase, not to the construction of the building; c) date of abandonment as a bath building (this does not exclude later reuse for other purposes).
Key to the catalogue texts: ?: unknown; -: does not apply; N, S, E, W, NE, etc.: north, south, east, west, rtheast, etc.
