spilia silla 02One of the remaining finds of the Roman period are the baths at the “Sylla Cave”. It can be found behind the hydrotherapy building of the Greek Tourism Organization near the church of the Sts. Anargiroi in the town of Loutra Aidipsos. The cave of Sylla is a small building with a dome.

The whole building has been covered with the residue of the sulfuric waters that boil out of the earth in the area and make it seem as an entrance to a cave. At the entrance to the “cave” stand two statues with inscriptions dedicated to the Roman emperors Andrianos and Septimios Severus from the municipality of Istiaia. The first also holds a later inscription honoring emperor Constantine of the Byzantium. This cave is connected to the general Sylla since he would come to the baths for therapy. Although there is still the opinion of some that this was a later monument that simply took his name.
