A big part of the vaulted segments of the Varius Baths of Ephesus are in a pretty good condition even nowadays. The baths were firstly built during the Hellenistic era and then enlarged during the Roman and the Byzantine Times.

The Varius Bath of Ephesus was made of marble and it consisted of three sections: the frigidarium with cold water, the tepidarium with warm water and the caldarium with hot water. There were also resting, sitting and reading rooms which were built in the 2nd century AD yet restored and new rooms added later. The mosaic corridor (40 m long), which have survived nowadays, date back to the 5th century AD.
