Street shrine at IX.2.12, Pompeii. December 2005. According to Breton, at the entry to the vicolo was a painting of two serpents, the most beautiful and the best preserved in Pompeii. 
The painting is surmounted by a small lararium and many inscriptions. See Breton, Ernest. 1855. Pompeia, decrite et dessine: Seconde edition . Paris, Baudry. (p. 315). According to Fiorelli, at this point was a painting of two large serpents approaching  a niche hollowed out of the wall. Underneath was the effigy of the altar among luxurious plants. Above the painting and continuing on the same wall, there remained various electoral programmes. See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p. 142). See Fröhlich, T., 1991. Lararien und Fassadenbilder in den Vesuvstädten. Mainz: von Zabern. (F61). See Helbig, W., 1868.
