Portus - 6 Landing-stage and baths

At the north end of the western stretch of the city wall (5) a landing-stage of the basin of Claudius was found. Three marble columns could be used for mooring. These reused columns had been inserted horizontally in a wall from the period of Septimius Severus.

At the same spot rooms belonging to baths were found, built in the late-Severan period.
