What is it?

You may not be able to tell from this angle, but this is actually an ancient toilet from first century Ephesus! The toilet room was a long row of toilets such as this one, with no dividers between. Yep, no privacy. Even more amazing is that it was NOT a squatty but an actual toilet. Our guide told us that the wealthy people who would frequent this toilet house would send a servant two hours ahead of time to sit and warm the cold stone.
