Tuvaletler / Latrines
Sehrin geç antik dönemdeki yenilenmesi sirasinda, Hamam Gimnasium kompleksinin güneybati kösesine umumi tuvaletler nsa edilmistir. Tuvalet kapilarinin kuzeye ve doguya açilmasi, buranin, hem hamam müsterilerine hem de mermer caddeden geçenlere hizmet verdigi fikrini akla getirmektedir. Benzer bir sekilde düzenlenmis iki uzun dikdörtgen oda, erkeklervekadinlar tarafindan ayri ayri kullanildigini gösterir. Her iki bölümde de duvar boyunca mermer oturak siralari dizilmistir. 40 -50 cm. ara ile oyulmus tuvalet oturaklari, iki düzine kullaniciya ayni anda hizmet verecek durumdadir. Büyük tuvaletteki oturak sirasinin önünde, zeminden yükseltilmis mermer oluk vasitasiyla devamli temiz su akisi saglanmistir. Oturaklarin altinda Hamam''dan gelen su ile temizlenen derin bir kanal yer almaktadir. Burada orijinal dekorasyonun parçasi oldugu varsayilan ayakta duran Dionysos ve giyimli bir kadin heykeli bulunmustur.
