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.

  • 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. 
  • Ephesus antique city attracts the most point is about eight thousand years ' public toilet. Among them was a compartment lined up side by side and without Western-style toilets are made of marble under the clear fragrances used bath water droppings when people avoid the bidet cleaning from the front of the section in clean water flows in the middle of a public restroom where the small Canal. On cooler days, previously eliminated by setting the slaves be heated and is also provided on the city's intense political and philosophic sharing of this ' public toilet is an interesting field to be seen '.
