Baths of Constantine.
Constantine I, Emperor of Rome, -337.
Baths of Constantine, on the Quirinal Hill. The Baths of Constantine were built around 315 AD at the top of the Quirinal Hill. Water came from the Aqua Marcia Aqueduct, which also supplied the Baths of Diocletian. Constantine's Baths were small in comparison with other baths in Rome and it is speculated that perhaps they were more exclusive. Little survives from the baths except several important statues.
