About Nymphaeum of Kos
The Nymphaeum of Kos was an Ancient Roman building and its name is something of a misnomer.
Called the Nymphaeum because its opulence initially led archaeologists to think it was a sanctuary dedicated to the Nymphs, it has since been determined that this would have been a very luxurious set of lavatories.
Also on this site was the Ancient Roman gymnasium or ’Xysto’, the ruins of which are quite impressive and include several columns, and not far from the Odeon of Kos is also close by.
The Odeon of Kos dates back to the second or third century and would have served as a Roman theatre.
The Kos Ancient Agora contains a series of ruins dating from the fourth century BC to the sixth century AD.
