The baths at Pella, first excavated in 1997, are the earliest-constructed public baths found in Macedonia and were in use from roughly the fourth to the first century BCE. Evidence for the structure is mostly wall foundations, although a large amount of stroke-polished pottery was found in the surviving bath pits. A great deal of Attic and Corinthian pottery in addition to the Macedonian burnished ware was found at the site. The baths appear to have had several swimming pools in addition to the individual bathtubs, as well as a large subterranean kiln in the center of the room to heat the water.
