Here’s a pretty cool French blog on Near Eastern bathing culture from antiquity to today: Balneorient, run by a research project with the same title. Its latest post reports on the discovery of a 5th century AD bathhouse at Tell al-Kasra, 45 km north-west of Deir ez-Zor. See also this short notice from SANA (HT: Research News in Late Antiquity).
