Public Latrine, Selcuk

(4.5/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • Public toilets, really charming part of value. Hygiene is the perfect, permanent water flows. open air bad smell perception. And the people there, their time is not wasted in politics, economy, everyday life they live up to journalism As, if I lived in the past, I'd be happier, I'm jealous, I wonder? Who knows? In today's difficult conditions, wars, bombs and people who died. The children ... the children who died. Thought-provoking.

  • This site was of moderate interest, but in comparison to other parts of the Ephesus ruins, it is merely a curiosity.  more »
