It consists of different rooms and open spaces, such as a changing room, a warm room, a sauna room, a hot room and other services room (Fig. 1 ‐b). The bath came to an end by a destruction caused by an earthquake at around 400 AD. Furthermore, in the first half of the 7th century AD., the bath was used as a habitation or perhaps for industrial purposes. It was ultimately destroyed by the great earthquake of eighth century AD.
