This impressive site is situated about 500 meter walk toward south west from Pithagorio (free entrance).
In the Hellenistic period, a huge gymnasion was constructed at this site. Later in the Roman period, the eastern part of the gymnasion was converted into the public baths. Unfortunately, I cannot tell exactly which parts correspond to which period.
This is floor mosaics, probably of the Roman period. Two naked youths (of the right man only a leg was left) are engaging wrestling.
In Late Antiquity, a Christian church was constructed (below). A white table-like stone that you can see at the centre of the photo is baptismal fountain.
