The Great Thermal Baths were the largest and most lavish baths built in Roman Dion in Macedonia (Greece). They were built in the late 2nd century CE and abutted the southern city wall. The extensive underfloor hypocaust heating system and false walls made of terracotta pipes allowed hot air to circulate throughout the rooms.
