View of a figure of Artemis that was carved on one side of a square pedestal.  Compare this with one of the Artemis' that were discovered in the Prytaneum.  Note the headdress, the multiple breasts, the skirt,  and the two animals at her feet.  I am not sure what her hands are resting on.

The Varius Bath was located at the west end of the Curetes Street, on the north side of the street.  It was established in the first half of the second century A.D.  Later they were refurbished by a Christian woman named Scholasticia.  Sometimes they are called the Bath of Scholasticia.
