Regio IV - Insula IV - Forica IV,IV,4

To the south of the Forum and the Temple of Rome and Augustus are a nymphaeum and a large public latrine. The latrine is c. 0.70 above the street-level. It was entered from the north-east. Along three walls are seats. For the seats marble sarcophagi and funerary inscriptions were reused. The opus vittatum of the latrine has been dated to the last quarter of the fourth century.
