— Süd-Therme —English: The complex, one of the best preserved buildings in Perge, is noteworthy because of its size and monumentality when compared with its counterparts in Pamphylia. Rooms that served different functions like the dressing room (apodyterium), cold bath (frigidarium), warm bath (tepidarium), hot bath (caldarium), and exercise area (palaestra) were lined side by side and offered maximum utility to the bathers who had the chance to pass from one room to another of their choice. The heating system (hypocaust) can be seen beneath the pavement of some rooms today. The south baths in Perge also included rooms for intellectual activities, thus preserving the traditions of the Greek gymnasia. One of these is the hall dubbed today as the Klaudius Peison / Clauılius Piso Gallery on account of the dedicatory inscriptions incised in bases of the numerous statues found inside. This gallery and the rest of the rooms in the south baths have yielded a large collection of sculptural finds that are now displayed in Antalya Museum.
