Assistant Professor Şükrü Özüdoğru, the head of the Kibyra excavations, said this year they had found the bath, which is the third largest structure after a stadium and an odeon (field for music concerts), adding, “This structure is one of the largest ones in Anatolia in terms of its size with 5,400 square meters. The main structure is 2,600 square meters. We see an underfloor heating system in the bath.”
Özüdoğru said they had attempted to understand the water and sewer system by reaching the bottom of the bath.
