VII.5.2.7.8.10.12.24 Pompeii. Terme del Foro or Forum Baths. Plan.

The plan, numbers and the descriptions are based on those used by Niccolini and are those used on the pompeiiinpictures pages.

It has not been possible to visit all the part of the baths to verify and photograph these.

Our photo coverage is therefore not complete, particularly in the women's baths.

Our photographs can be seen by following these links:

    VII.5.2    VII.5.7    VII.5.8    VII.5.10    VII.5.12    VII.5.24    VII.6.17    VII.6.18
