Hadrianic Baths, Leptis Magna, Libya 

Built by the command of Emperor Hadrian in the early 2nd century CE, these represent some of the most lavish structures of Leptis Magna.

The baths contained an open-air swimming pool, and several indoor pools, both with hot water and cold. Furnaces used for heating water are found outside the southern walls. Also note the several small rooms, these were changing cabinets, and the latrine with marble seats. Entrance to the baths are through the sports ground, the Palaestra.
