Three monuments are well known. First is a funerary
arch known as the Campanus arch because of an inscription mentioning that L. Pompeius Campanus had the
monument erected in honor of all his relatives. This type
of tomb is very unusual. It is 9.15 m high, 6.7 m wide,
and has a 3 m span. Built of finely cut stone, it has an
entablature terminating in a projecting cornice and
topped by an attic. On the E side of the arch are eight
niches, alternately rectangular and curved, for the busts
of the dignitaries listed below, while those of the other
six mentioned on the attic were probably on the top of
The next monument is called a temple, a rectangular
building (17 x 13 x 14.5 m); its walls, built of large
stones, still stand 9.75 m high. According to local tradition this was a temple to Diana, but the tradition is unfounded.
Finally, the baths, remodeled since antiquity and incompletely excavated, consist of three frigidaria, two
adjacent tepidaria, and two pools and one room, all
heated. The pools were faced with marble and the walls
with painted stucco. The healing god Bormo (or Borvo)
was worshiped at Aix.
The town museum has inscriptions, sculptures (Constantine? a Muse?) and other finds from the surrounding
