These baths are located on the east-west internal mole delineating the Claudian basin and the entrance canal to the Trajanic basin.

Through much of their life (known to extend form the first century AD through until sometime in the sixth century AD) this would have been one of the busiest port locations in the empire. With the Canale di Imbocco al Porto di Traiano running alongside it this would have seen ships and lighters passing almost continuously, particularly at the height of the sailing season.
