Shared amenities


Housing almost a thousand men in the same place also requires the construction of various collective amenities, particularly toilet facilities. Excavations in the lower and central sections of the amphitheatre have uncovered traces of structures which seem to correspond to this purpose. The remnants of the shower block are visible, consisting of two large rooms with a succession of concrete and slab flooring, with water outflow channels around the edges. These facilities are flanked by the boiler cupboard and hot water tank. A little further up the slope, the brickwork base of a double oven sits atop a floor composed of carefully arranged limestone slabs. These would appear to be the remnants of a steam room used to wash and delouse the soldier’s uniforms.
