Abstract
Description
A sign describes the social function of the Roman style bathhouse and its accompanying colonated exercise courtyard. A note indicates that during the rebel occupation at the time of the Jewish-Roman war the bathhouse was modified by the addition of two mikvehs (mikva'ot), immersion pools for ritual (worship/faith related) purification.
