4.B.6. Roman Public Toilets

Let’s go outside and walk the Lechaion Road. We will come across monuments, markets, forums, and a Roman public toilet.

In Roman civilization, public toilets were elevated to raise them above open sewers using flowing water that were linked to drains. The flowing water removed the human waste. Public or private “If ya got to go, ya got to go”.
