I.10.7 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 1, latrine. According to Hobson, Ling wrote in 1997, that this latrine was screened on the south by a low masonry wall. On the east side, apparently, screened by a timber or timber-framed partition, the evidence for which was an iron-lined posthole in the floor. In fact, it is likely that this was a swivel post for a wooden door and the jamb against the wall. Due to the lack of preservation of wood in Pompeii, no doors have been found. See Hobson, B., 2009. Latrinae et foricae: Toilets in the Roman World. London; Duckworth. (p.82)
