Baths of Diocletian.
Diocletian, Emperor of Rome, 245-311 AD
Baths of Diocletian and Maximian between the Quirinal and Viminal Hills. The baths were built between 298 - 306. The baths could accommodate almost 3000 bathers at one time, almost double the number of Caracalla, though they were not much larger in area. The baths also contained gymnasia, libraries, and a swimming pool in addition to the typical cold, tepid, and hot baths. Later, Michelangelo converted one of the baths into the Basilica of St. Mary and the Angels. Part of the complex is now part of the National Museum of Rome.
