Octagonal Hall

This superb octagonal room (its cupola recalling that it served as a planetarium in the 1920s) was probably a sort of corridor or a small frigidarium (cold chamber in the baths). Today the room houses Roman bronze and marble statues which were discovered in the baths dating from the Imperial period (2C-4C AD).
