VII.2.18 Pompeii.  March 2009. Room 9, upper floor apartment, latrine in north wall of upper floor. According to Hobson, a total of 15 upper storey latrines have been identified in the city, including this one. He says that these latrines would seem to have been placed near to the top of the staircase, and would have been placed in narrow plastered niches with terracotta downpipes inserted into the walls to carry the waste product down into the cesspit.  This latrine shows the slots in the sides of the niche where the wooden seat fitted, and the tapering, easily sluiced plaster below the seat.
