The bath of Neros wife

This bath is made of one solid piece of granite. Neros wife used to fill it with goats milk to keep her skin soft. Beneath it is a tiled floor picturing various water scenes.

Also below are some unusual statues:

1. Alexander, made of bronze, struck by lightning and buried by Romans to avoid bad luck. 2. Julius Caesar (I think)
3. Artemis goddess of fertility, draped with Bull testicles.
