About Ephesus, Ephesus Public Latrines toilets

This category of toilet generally means public ones of Greek design. These were communal — no private stalls, but instead several closely adjacent seats on long benches. The flat-topped bench was executed in a variety of materials, although marble highly polished through use was perhaps the most elegant.
Beside the temple, on a far less glamourous note, are the town’s ancient public toilets. Tour guides don’t seem to bother showing them to people but I find them remarkable.

The toilets are built in the Roman style: all together in one room, side by side, close enough for a chat with friends. The long marble benches had (rather narrow) holes for up to 50 people to use at once. A water channel in front of the toilets served as a bidet to wash yourself. Ephesus had an advanced sewage system, so the latrines were quite hygienic.

There were plenty of slaves on hand to keep those marble toilet seats spic and span.

These facilities were only for men. Wealthy ladies would have their slave leave a chamber pot in their litter chairs  should nature call when they were in town- they didn’t walk through the streets like common folk. One thing does puzzle me: what did the poorer females of do if they needed to go, just hold on?.
