The 1926 photos on page 119 of Titulorum Pictorum Pompeianorum do not show any sign of a street shrine in this location.

However, there is a note that says originally the photos were ascribed to II.2.1-5.

At II.2.1 there was a street shrine, so perhaps that is where the confusion has arisen from.
