English: A hypocaust (Latin hypocaustum) was an ancient Roman system of central heating / underfloor heating. The word literally means "heat from below", from the Greek hypo meaning below or underneath, and kaiein, to burn or light a fire. They are traditionally considered to have been invented by Sergius Orata, though this is not fully confirmed.
