Two regular bathers in the hot room in happier times. The marble seats were normally covered with bath sheets and bathers rested their heads on the specially shaped wooden head-rests. Here, in 1986, the towels covering the two bathers were reported to have been specially 'worn for the photographer.'

A better view of part of the central floor design can be seen here.
