The complex of Agnano

The Thermal Complex of Agnano is located a few kilometers from the city center, in particular it is located in the Campi Flegrei west of the city. The first thermal structures date back to the Augustan and Julio-Claudian ages, therefore between the XNUMXst century BC and the XNUMXst century AD.

Within this complex there are two zones, one comprising the frigidarium and warm environments, while the second area includes a series of smaller rooms used as locker rooms and deposits of ointments and perfumes.

Il frigidarium it has two basins, a smaller one rectangular in shape, and the other semicircular with three niches in the back wall. It was precisely during the excavations of the frigidarium that four statues were found: one of marine Venus, one of armed Aphrodite, one of Hermes with the child Dionysus and one of Ganymede.

The entire complex had a water supply system, i.e. theSerino aqueduct which then in turn poured into two basins through a secondary conduit, from here the water then reached the individual rooms.
