Abstract

Baiae, in the Bay of Naples, was the center of the most extensive thermo-mineral resort in antiquity and a coveted location for the pleasure estates of Roman aristocracy. Excavated in 1950-51, the hillside of Baiae revealed extensive remains of a thermal city, domed and vaulted structures, gardens, pools, fountains, colonnades, and arcades. Were this complex and its extensions public baths and cure facilities, or private and royal villas? The answer is sought through an analysis of the literary and architectural evidence, and the unique visual testimony provided by De Balneis Puteolanis, a profusely illustrated early thirteenth-century manuscript.
