This square-shaped public toilet had a pool in the center with seats arranged along the sides. A water channel was in front of the seats and the floor was covered in mosaic. The seats were covered but the pool was open. At each corner of the pool was a column supporting the roof.
There are some inscriptions on the front of the building. If you are curious, they say that "the library was erected in 110 AD by the Consul Gaius (Tiberius) Julius Aquila as a mausoleum for his father Gaius (Tiberius) Julius Celsus Polemaenus Aquila (92-114 AD). A sum of 25,000 denarii was bequeathed for the purchase of books and the upkeep of the building."
You certainly were not allowed to be modest about you personal duties back in the days of the Roman Empire. Sandwiched between the Brothel and the Baths of Scholastikia are these ancient toilets.
Im not sure what this monument is actually called, i do know its something to do with Ephesus, perhaps a kind v,ter will help me out
Hierapolis - Pamukkale - Aphrodisias :
beautiful and historical places to visit in the area of Izmir or Kusadasi.
Near Pamukalle you will see the antique city !

Visiting Efeze is not only looking at monuments and architecture !
If any luck - take a picture of the local animals too !!
Look for the footprint carved into the street marble to show the way to the brothel! It means: on the left side(you can see the left food) there's a brothel!!!
