Since the Scholastica Baths underwent a major restoration, they needed a lot of raw material. Materials such as marble came from the Prytaneion, which was the pagan center during the Roman era of Ephesus but the very same building was not used by Christian Ephesians anymore. The large bath consists of 4 (apodyterium, calidarium, frigidarium, and massage rooms) parts.
