Archeologists are bringing to daylight the first thermal treatment center in Anatolia, a local deputy mayor said on Sunday.

Deputy Mayor Sadettin Ozturk of Sarikaya town of the central province of Yozgat said archeologists were carrying out excavations to unearth "Basilica Therma", the first thermal treatment center in Anatolia.

"A snake figure on the construction proves that this place was used as a treatment center," Ozturk told AA correspondent.

Five architectural pieces have been discovered in excavations so far.

Dating to 3,000 years ago, the thermal facility is one of unique constructions built during the Early Roman age.
