Annotation

During the excavation of the Bath of the Cyclopses, a mosaic of cyclopses forging Jupiter’s thunderbolts was uncovered. It is now on display at the Bardo National Museum, where several very well preserved latrines are also on display. The building has been dated to the 3rd century CE on the basis of a study of the mosaic.1

In dit badhuis is een mozaïek gevonden van de Cyclopen die Jupiters bliksemschichten smeden. Ook is er een aantal zeer goed bewaarde latrines te zien. Op basis van het mozaïek kan het badhuis gedateerd worden op de derde eeuw.
