Ruins seen at the back of the Temple of Hadrian belongs to Scholastica Bath. The bath built at the end of the 1st century or at the beginning of the 2nd century A.D. was named after a woman named Scholastica for repairing it in 400s A.D.

At the end of the right side of the street Latrina (toilet) and Love House (brothel) with marble entrances were located. The floor of the Latrina is covered with mosaics. The structure named Love House because of the architrave piece on “paidiskeion” inscription found during the excavations was two stories. Winter (covered head) and autumn (wreathed head) from the motives symbolizing seasons, which are on the mosaic tiled floor of the room functioning as living and dining room in the east, are in good condition.
