VIII.7.21 Pompeii. July 2007. Latrine by the entrance to the Large Theatre from the Triangular Forum. According to Barry Hobson, the place itself is dark with two small windows, and despite the fact that there would have been water running through the drain to remove excreta, it must have been very unpleasant in Roman times.
