"The latriana" Toilet Tip by lashr1999

Toilet, Ephesus: 17 reviews and 30 photos


Another interesting feature was the latriana which were built in the first century. These are public toilets which were side by side with no partitions. The wealthy would use these toilets and do their business and talk about business and politics at the same. They used this as a sort if meeting place to talk. When first built, the floor was paved with mosaic and had ornate statues.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
