VI.2.16 Pompeii. May 2011. Looking west into room in south-west corner of atrium.
According to Fiorelli, this was the stairs to the upper floor.  According to Hobson, the narrow room with a step up over a threshold stone and a window at the far end was possibly a latrine. However, an area in the kitchen with a low wall, on which a screen might have been stood and again with a window, suggests the position of a latrine.  Either or both could be a latrine.
