Beyte El Ma

The latrines

The toilets, more commonly known as "Beyt el ma" (shower room) are generally located next to "el djeb" (rainwater reserve) and below the bottom of the beyte, as is the case at palace 18, thus allowing a better flow and serving as a kind of flushing, thus achieving substantial water savings.

The Turkish bowl is arranged in a slate of schist or marble on the ground, or slightly elevated. Above, a window for ventilation. Evacuation to the sea occurs by natural gravitation.

An amphora embedded in the wall with a tap allows ablutions.

Toilets are generally covered with ridge vaults, rarely by a floor, its walls, most often covered with ceramic tiles.
