Abstract

The Baths of Indirizzo in Catania represent one of the best preserved thermal buildings in the Roman Empire. The goal of this research is twofold and concerns the determination of the date of the monument construction and of its last use. For these purposes, brick samples were collected at specific points of the baths, in order to date them by thermally stimulated luminescence. On this occasion we present some partial results and the study carried out for the optimization of the measurement protocol on historical terracotta.
