Comfort station

Some of the toilets in the public baths. In cold weather, the wealthier patrons would sometimes send servants to sit on the stone seats for a while to warm them up before exposing their own backsides to the chilly marble.

We were told that men would often stay here and chat with each other after concluding their business, which just made me pity anyone who got stuck sitting next to St. Paul.
