During ancient times, in the west of the city of Pythagorio, there were important sports premises, with a gymnasium, palestra (type of “ring”) and stadium. Later (second half of the 2nd century A.D.) this is where the Thermes of Pythagorio were built, i.e. Roman Baths. The south halls were occupied by the hot baths, the north ones by the cold baths and the octagonal pool. Moreover, it was ascertained that there was an arched hall and dressing rooms. Lastly, the walls and the floors were decorated with mosaics, out of which very few are preserved today.
