Terme Della Lanterna

Located on the east-west internal mole delineating the Claudian basin and the entrance canal to the Trajanic basin, the bath complex (c. 40 m by 30 m) was comprised of multiple vaulted rooms of brick-faced concrete construction. The first-century structure was initially excavated in 1824 when the marble cladding was removed. More recent systematic excavation was undertaken by L. Parioli on behalf of the Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Roma.
