Le terme romane a Reggio Calabria

Le " terme romane "conservano una piccola porzione, con tappeti a mosaico, dell'impianto di alcune terme private della media età imperiale. Le terme si dovevano trovare all'esterno della cinta muraria di epoca classica, vicino al fiume Apsia ( odierno Calopinace ), da cui dovevano giungere le acque per i bagni. La struttura aveva anche una palestra ( un gymnasion ) per gli esercizi ginnici, con un portico di cui si conservano numerose colonne, parte in palazzi limitrofi, parte ritrovate in mare.

The " roman baths ", with their mosaic floors, are a small part of a private bath system dating back to the mid-imperial age. The baths must have been situated outside the city walls of the classical age, near to the Apsia river the modern day Calopinace) , which would have provided them with water. The structure also had a gym ( gymnasion ) for exercises, of whose portico many columns remain, some found in nearby buildings, others in the sea.

    Wonder what was used as cement and sealant to keep the water in.
