Inscription.  English:
The public Latrine could be reached from the covered `Academy Street'. The free public toilet served the citizens as well as the visitors of the adjacent Varius Bath. The seats of the Latrine were arranged round three sides of the open colonnaded courtyard; fresh water flowed in the channel in front of the seats for cleaning. The Latrine was restored by the Ephesos Museum, Selçuk.

Turkish:
Üzeri kapalı olan `Akademi Sokağı'ndan umuma açık tuvalete ulaşılmaktaydı. Bu ücretsiz ve halka açık tuvalet, vatandaşlara olduğu kadar bitişikteki Varius Hamamı'nı ziyaret edenlere de hizmet etmekteydi. Tuvaletin oturak kısımları üstü açık sütunlu bir avlunun üç kenarına sıralanmıştır; oturma banklarının önünden geçen bir kanalda arıtma için temiz su akmaktaydı. Tuvalet Selçuk'taki Efes Müzesi tarafından restore edilmiştir.
