23 Laodicea Hierapolis Colossae

24 Part of the double aqueduct that brought water from the south to Laodicea. It was made of individual stone blocks, hollowed out, then sealed together with plaster and olive oil. The water was so concentrated with minerals that the Romans designed vents, capped by removable stones, so the aqueduct pipes could be cleaned of deposits.

25 Mineral-encrusted water pipes in a 16-foot-high water tower on the south side of Laodicea. The aqueduct that carried water into the city ended here. From here, the lukewarm mineral water was distributed throughout the city.

26 Water – Deeds Not fit for purpose! For drinking, bathing, or medicinal use. Lack of effectiveness not lack of fervour.
