More than forty (40) bath complexes were excavated in the westernmost part of the Eparchy of Illyricum, which now consists of the western coast of Greece, the coast of Albania and the Ionian Islands. Most of the baths are dated in the roman era, between the 1st and the 4th c. AD. Only few facilities survived after the 4th c. AD and even fewer were constructed in the 4th and the 5th c. AD. In any case, all the bath complexes were destroyed and/ or abandoned in the later 6th c. AD. The number of bath facilities is an indicator of the importance and wealth of a city or an area. Thus, in that part of the Eparchy, the focus should be on the area of Buthrotum, the city of Nicopolis and the island of Corfu.
