In excavations headed by Professor Girshman in
Shoosh (Susa), in a layer attributed to 2,000 years B.C., bathrooms were
found in the houses of the richer classes in the Susian community.
Also in the book of Esther we have a description of the way the girls who
were brought from the country being prepared to meet the King of Persia,
had to be bathed in hot baths for the period of a year.
