Pompeii. Street altar near I.1.10, looking west. September 2010. Photo courtesy of Drew Baker. According to Sogliano, on the south-east corner of the insula was a small masonry altar. The altar was covered with red stucco, and the wall behind was also painted. On this wall were two very large serpents crawling between plants, one on each side of the corner of the insula. Today, there is no visible trace, other than the red stucco at the base of the altar, above. See Sogliano, A., 1879. Le pitture murali campane scoverte negli anni 1867-79. Napoli: (p.9)
