Public Latrine, Selcuk

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.
