On the Citation...[edit]

"However, gender separation was restored by Hadrian.[citation needed]"

Maybe not so much by Emperor Hadrian himself, although maybe that's what the author of that sentence means, but around the time of Emperor Hadrian. (talk) 22:34, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

What about the practice of getting clean?[edit]

This article discusses the many facets of the bathhouses, which were largely recreational. But, it says little about personal hygiene at home, which I would expect since the article is not titled "Roman Baths", but "Ancient Roman Bathing". Didn't the Romans cover themselves with oil to scrape themselves clean? What about sponge baths? They had sponges. I'm sure of it. (talk) 22:40, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
