Weathered: Ancient Restrooms from Ostia Antiqua

Ostia Antiqua – a short train ride from the city of Rome, is a full landscape of weathered ancient buildings. Here is a communal restroom (most Roman citizens did not have private restrooms) and would have to use the communal ones throughout town. The restroom consisted of a sitting bench, waste holders and a running stream to clean communal refuse sponges (used instead of toilet paper).
