Ephesus Latrine

Ephesus Latrine

 The latrine, located on the arcade that runs on a north-south axis between the Scholastikia Baths and the Temple of Hadrian, always attracts interest. The door on the east side opens onto the Street. Tlıis public toilet has square basin in the middle, and rows of toilet seats along the sides. A channel of water ran directly in front of the seats.

Mosaics decorated the floor of the latrine. In antiquity, only the part of the latrine containing the toilet seats was covered. Four columns at the corners of the water basin carried the roof.
