VI.2.27 Pompeii. September 2005. Kitchen hearth. According to Hobson, the kitchen had a cooking surface and a niche latrine in the same room.
Beween them was a circular cover set in a square stone slab of the floor. This could be raised by pulling on a metal ring giving access to the cess-pit. See Hobson, B., 2009. Latrinae et foricae: Toilets in the Roman World. London; Duckworth. (p.90)
