“We have made the plan of the Roman baths in the ancient city. When the works are done, I hope that we will see all objects and in the baths,” said the head of the excavations, Pamukkale University’s Bilal Söğüt.

The academic said the works were continuing to revive important structures in the city and that they had found important data in every season.

Söğüt said the excavations were continuing with a 100-person team, adding that structures in the ancient city had survived as a whole.

There are three big Roman baths in the ancient city, he said. “One of them is a women’s bath. We are now cleaning it. We have also determined the existence of two other baths.” Söğüt said the baths were not only places that were used to clean oneself but also places where people had spent time and relaxed.
