King Herod’s Ritual Bath at Machaerus.
Not far from Machaerus, in 2011, a similar Ritual Bath was excavated at Tall el-Hammam believed to be the ancient site of Livias (captial of Perea) where Herod Anitpas lived. While the structure dated to the Byzantine period it was built over a previous bath that dated to the first century AD.
