Public Latrine, Selcuk

(4.5/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Built around the 1st century CE, Public Latrine featured upscale facilities, including three marble benches with seats and mosaic floors, where wealthy citizens could visit when nature called. Considered modern for the period, the site used advanced plumbing systems and provided a small pool as well. As toilet paper was not available then, users of the latrine would clean themselves with a moist sponge on a stick. Today you can see the well-preserved remains of this restroom and its 36 toilets, all positioned one next to another in perfect linear fashion.

  • I think it's a different kind of toilet of history. I saw people weird but when search of fretless modern toilet.

  • The oldest known is expressed as a public restroom. About 50 people and an interesting environment without any wall. So on the one hand, on the other hand, when the need for toilet in a different atmosphere where you can chat with people. Indeed, the most important city in the gossip venues in one. I'm learning here what is going on in the city of light. One detail: before entering the toilet slave of a slave-owning nobles sending in advance, and heating of the ground stone is to sit and who both environment öğreniyorlamış. Namely humanity a thousand years after the show too much of a change. Ephesus antique City stays in mind when you go to the interest and 3-5 from the floor. Ephesus go necessarily, e when entered, the ancient public toilets.

  • Interesting for people to see how the ancients dealt with issues such as human waste. It used to be you had access to the toilets for photographs. The last time I went in 2016, they were blocked off.  more »
