Nothing New Under the Sun

Dora P. Crouch, Water Management in Ancient Greek Cities (New York: Oxford University Press, 1993), p. 27, with illustration on p. 249:
At Olynthos, one terra-cotta toilet was found, and a couple of urinals, all three so similar to ours in shape as to prove there is nothing new under the sun (J.W. Graham, 1938, pl. 55) (see Fig. 17.7).

The reference is to J.W. Graham, The Hellenic House (Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1938 = Excavations at Olynthus, VIII), unavailable to me.
