Hypatia of Alexandria Bathes

Hypatia of Alexandria Bathes

Hypatia (350/370-415 AD), the eminent female scholar at the Library of Alexandria in Roman Egypt, is taking a break from teaching astronomy and mathematics to chill (or would that be warm up?) at the local bath house. Because I wanted to be the first in the history of art to draw Hypatia of Alexandria in a bikini.

Normally people in the Roman Empire would bathe naked, I believe, but a nude picture would limit the venues I could display this at.
