I.2.3 Pompeii. 1935 photo taken by Tatiana Warscher. Warscher described this photo as a part of the north wall of triclinium “d”. Describing from Fiorelli, Descrizione, p.37, she quoted: “I.2.3 “Di fronte all’ingresso si trovano il tablino (e) ed il triclinio (d), in cui è notevole un grande masso di lava vesuviana dell’età preistorica, a cui fu addossato uno dei muri (nord) di questa stanza, e che prolungasi internamente sotto le fondazioni delle camere adiacenti”.
See Warscher T., 1935. Codex Topographicus Pompeianus: Regio I.2. (no.9), Rome: DAIR, whose copyright it remains.   
(translation: "I. 2.3" facing the entrance you will find the tablinum (e) and the triclinium (d), in which it was noted there was a large boulder of vesuvian lava of prehistoric age, which was leaning against one of the walls (north wall) of this room, and that it extended internally under the foundations of the adjacent rooms”.)

1.2.3 Pompeii. September 2010. South wall of atrium. Photo courtesy of Drew Baker. According to Boyce, on the south wall of the atrium was a rectangular niche.  (This can be seen on the left at the side of the wooden beam wall-support).  On the wall below were two serpents and an altar, all done in white stucco relief upon a rectangular red panel. 
There was also a painted figure of the Genius with cornucopia and patera.  No traces remain. In the same wall, to the right and higher, was a second niche. (This can be seen in the centre of the photo, behind the other wooden beam wall-support). This was smaller and had a vaulted ceiling. Fiorelli referred to both these niches as lararia, but according to Boyce, this second niche served another purpose.

I.2.3 Pompeii. 1935 photo by Tatiana Warscher. Looking towards the south wall of the atrium, with a single table-leg in the centre. In the south wall are a cupboard/recess and two niches for the household Lares, underneath can be seen the two serpents coiling around an altar, in stucco relief. Warscher described the atrium as –
“I.2.3, l’atrio con un monopodio in mezzo. Nella parete sud – sono un armadio e due nicchie per i Lari, sotto una delle quali sono effigiati in stucco a rilievo i due serpenti.

I.2.3 Pompeii. 1912 photo by Tatiana Warscher.
Lararium in the south wall of the atrium.
Warscher noted that the photo was taken by her in 1912 (on her honeymoon!).
When writing the DAIR copy of the Codex (1935) she wrote –
“Adesso i serpenti sono in uno stato peggiore. Il Genio familiare con patera e cornucopia non esisteva già nell’anno 1912”.

(translation: “Now the serpents are in a bad state. The Genius with plate and cornucopia did not exist even by 1912”.)
