Bathe with a buddy

Among the more amazing features of many Punic Kerkouane residences are the private baths. This one is particularly elaborate. Note the flecks on the floor. That is a sure sign of opus signinum or "fancy linoleum" (for more, see here). The tub is in the style of baignoire à sabot, suggesting a seated, rather than a reclining affair. I'm just guessing now, but this one looks like a two seater. Note how the bottom of the tub is raised to create the seats. The construction also minimizes water use and maximizes space in this small room. The third basin (closest to the camera is raised still higher, perfect for face or hand washing or washing a child. All are rose-stained for a lovely effect.

Don't you feel squeaky clean now?
