Public fountains
Sbe´tla, Tunisia

I found hard to identify the fountain function of the public fountains at Sbe´tla. The upper photo shows the most noteworthy, situated not far from the House of the Seasons. The lower photo shows a huge fountain area next to the grand Forum.
At least on the last fountain, there are cuts in the front slabs, letting water out before flowing over. But where is the piping?
