Ostia Antica Baths of Mithras

This set of baths is in the western part of Ostia, Rome's ancient port. The baths are arranged around central courts and have a very well-preserved service area that includes fittings for a water wheel. This wheel, operated by slaves, lifted 1000 liters of water an hour to a cistern for running down into the baths. More information at: http://www.ostia-antica.org/regio1/17...
