Roman Baths of Acharavi

The Roman Baths of Acharavi were discovered just in 1985, during the excavations for the construction of residences. They are situated in the position of Skales of Acharavi, just across the Folklore Museum and today it is possible to visit the archaeological site which belongs to the archaeological service.

Archaeologists suspect that the Roman Baths of Acharavi belonged to a villa of that time which has not been found, except its part with the baths.

A rectangular space composed of several rooms for hot water is the main edifice of the Roman Baths of Acharavi. The continuation of the walls shows the existence of at least 6 rooms in total, the three of which are easily visible, as well as the doors connecting them.

In the Roman Baths of Acharavi a space has also been found where, the wash-tubs probably were but, also the part of the pipe where, the hot air passed in order to go into the room.

Among the findings are potsherds, an embossed lamp, coins made of copper as well as fragments of glass, tiles made of marble and two capitals of Ionic order.
