The internal latrine in the Villa Romana del Casale is located in a triangular space between the thermal baths, the peristyle and the tablinum.

The latrine has served the persons who were granted access to the peristyle. It is a semicircular room, with the seats along the curved wall. A few of the marble seats are still in place. Underneath is a canal for permanently running water. This system of latrines were very common and can also be seen in the Public latrines in Ostia Antica.

The floor is covered by a well preserved mosaic showing five animals. At the top there is an ass, a hare and a partridge, at the bottom a bustard and a serval.
