Ancient Roman baths
The first baths were built in Rome by Agrippa (25-19 BC), who bequeathed them to the Roman population for free use. Next to them, on the Champ de Mars, Nero built his terms (later they were repaired by Alexander Sever, which is why they are sometimes called Alexandrov). Not far from the Nero Golden House are the baths of Titus; almost to the northeast of them were the baths of Trajan (104-109), where women were washed in the reign of this emperor. Later, the terms of Caracalla, officially called the Antoninovs, were erected; they were near the Appian Way, behind the Kapensky Gate, between Aventin and Celius. Between Quirinale and Viminal lay the baths of Diocletian (298-306), occupying 13 hectares. Michelangelo’s frigidarium turned them into the church of Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri, which exists today. It also houses the National Museum of Rome. The baths were also built on the territory of the Roman provinces, for example, the imperial baths in Trier.
Inside, the imperial baths were made of marble, decorated with mosaics, sculptures and marble columns, the windows and doors were made of bronze. The following premises were in the baths: clothes were left in the locker room (apodyterium), then the visitor could go in for sports or lubricate the body with oils. The bathing program began with bathing in cold water in frigidarium, then in lukewarm water in tepidarium, and then in caldarium, with warm water.
Thermal heating system
Roman bath on a canvas by Alma-Tadema in a London gallery Tate - Roman architects have developed an effective central heating system with floor and wall heating - hypocaustum. In terms with the help of an oven (praefurnium), water and air were heated, which were then circulated under the floor and in the cavity of the walls. In this case, double coatings were used so that the floor was not very hot. The topcoat consisted of large bricks, a layer of broken clay and a base coat. All this rested on small brick supports (pilae), which were immediately placed in a checkerboard pattern. Rectangular bricks were built into the walls, hollow (tubuli) inside, which were fastened with metal brackets. Inside the walls, the terms were decorated with marble or plastered.
