The sweating chamber (laconicum) in the Roman Bath, which was found during the 2008 excavations in Parion, the port city of the Roman Empire with a history of 2,700 years in Kemer village of Biga district of Çanakkale province of Türkiye, was restored to its original form. The ancient bath, which has a history of approximately 1950 years, was reopened to visitors.
“The structure of this bath differs from others in Western Anatolia because it has a sweating room, a section called ‘laconicum’. The first construction phase of the bath dates back to the second half of the 1st century AD. It is small but has a special place for Western Anatolia due to the architecture it reflects,” said Assoc. Dr. Hasan Kasapoğlu.
