For the spe­cial exhi­bi­ti­on “Strugg­le for Nero’s heri­ta­ge – the Hel­ve­ti­ans bet­ween the fronts” in the Vin­do­nis­sa Muse­um, the sett­le­ments adja­cent to the bat­h­ing quar­ter were set on fire.
The pic­tu­re is based on the recon­struc­tion of Baden around 200 AD for the City Histo­ry of Baden (in coöpe­ra­ti­on with Joe Roh­rer).

After Nero’s sui­ci­de, four emperors fought for the Roman thro­ne. 68/69 AD, con­flicts aro­se bet­ween Hel­ve­ti­ans and the 21st Legi­on (Rapax) sta­tio­ned in Vin­do­nis­sa. As reven­ge, the Legi­on burns down Baden at that time.
