Two things to note right away.... Gordian III never had any baths built, despite the copper plate saying these are the baths of Gordian III, and second... this looks nothing like a Roman bath complex. So what in effect you have here is what someone in 1612 imagined a Roman bath looked like, and he mistook the baths of Licinius Sura for baths allegedly built by Gordian III. The reality is that Gordian III restored the baths of Licinius Sura, but he did not build a complex of his own. Still, a nice tidbit of enlightenment age re-imagining of Roman architecture, and it has a link to Gordian III... even if only marginal. Here's a coin of Gordian III still in my collection. And here's my other two copper plates from the 1699 re-issue of the book. These images have been cropped to make them look cleaner, but the edges have darkening just like the image of the Baths of Gordian III above. 7 Colossal statues of Rome in antiquity Mausoleum of Augustus Feel free to comment or post whatever you want.
