dc.descriptionIn the 4th century, C.E., a Christian basilica was erected at Cimiez on the remnants of the largest Roman bath complex in Gaul. Cimiez, known as Cemenelum in Roman times, is now a northern suburb of Nice, in southern France (on the Mediterranean coast between Marseille and Genoa, Italy). The basilica occupied the West (or Women's) Bath, incorporating some of its remains. One room of the ancient bath became the church's baptistery where the hexagonal, three-step immersion font remains. Ancient Cimiez was excavated between 1943 and 1973; discoveries are preserved in the Nice-Cimiez archeological park.en
