According to Hobson when writing “next door to VII.9.63 a new entrance from the street was made. This gave access via a staircase to the upper storey, and to the right of the stairs another new latrine was constructed.  This was now back to back with the one in VII.9.63 and emptied into the same cesspit. In addition the staircase led to an upper storey latrine, the down pipe from which was inserted into the wall. The provision here of three latrines leads one to ask who used each of them?”.
