Room 47: Latrine for women.

 

According to Malandrino –

“The latrine: of particular interest is the drainage of waste water from the tub which enters into underground channels, allowing thus, the continuous cleaning of the same. The area behind the south wall was reserved for women.”

 See Malandrino, C., (1978). Oplontis Villa of Poppea, (p.78, numbered as room 44).
