The article says "toilet set" (not "seat").

There are many surviving examples of Roman latrines and photos of some of them are easily accessible online (try googling "roman toilet"). Of course this article is about a period long before the Romans arrived in Britain.

Ah, good catch. I read somewhere that the Poles invented the toilet seat and it was actually the Germans that put the hole in it. This is second hand knowledge though.
