About 570 meters south of the Stadium and west of the cemetery road, which after crossing the North Cemetery led to the Suburb (Proasteion), stood the ruins of an extensive bath complex, known in the past by the name “Bedenia”.
Various spaces were arrayed in a radial fashion around the imaginary axis of a large semicircular exedra. The central entrance to the exedra led to a rectangular hall with two facing apses. Two additional entrances on either side of the central one each led to respective rectangular halls. At the ends of the semicircular exedra, two vaulted corridors allowed passage to rooms with more complex plans where apses predominated.
The building was connected with the Aqueduct of the city through a branch that started from the central channel in the northwest at the foot of the hills of Michalitsi and then headed for the Gymnasium and the Baths.
Although the date of the Baths cannot be precisely determined without excavation, we are led to conclude that they belong to the Hadrianic age (117-138 AD), judging from the similarities of the complex at Nicopolis to the buildings of Hadrian’s Villa at Tivoli both in terms of plan as well as building techniques.
