We know that these immense, spacious and magnificent buildings, in addition to the convenience they contained, also contained a theater and an infinity of rooms intended for walking and physical exercise. They were decorated with infinite luxury, in columns, statues, bas-reliefs, the most precious, drawn from Africa.
Architects, painters, and sculptors all possessed talent and taste; it can also be said, with reason, that the Thermes or ancient baths brought together the assembly of all the productions of the art of the ancients.
No modern building has yet offered anything so perfect in terms of composition, interior distribution, symmetry, nothing richer, so seductive in ornamental decorations.
A detailed knowledge of these magnificent monuments should be particularly advantageous wherever the use of the baths is most generally adopted.
