I.7.11 Pompeii. December 2006. South end of house, north wall of north portico with reproduction wooden doors, leading from I.7.12. According to Jashemski, Maiuri said the space between the columns and the west pillar of the portico were closed by glass set in a wooden frame. This would have kept the rain and sun from the triclinium, tablinum and exedra. Maiuri did not mention finding any glass and some scholars think that wooden shutters were used. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.38)
From now on, the photos show the northern part of this house, starting from the north wall of the north portico. To see the southern part of the house and garden area, see I.7.12

I.7.11 Pompeii. December 2006. Lararium on west wall. According to Boyce, in a very narrow room opening off the north-west corner of the peristyle and west of the triclinium is a lararium. The arched niche is simply decorated with a dark stripe outlining the niche against the white of the surrounding wall. On the wall below the niche are two painted serpents, one on each side. Their heads are on a level with the floor of the niche.  (Boyce then gives a note that these serpents direct their heads to the niche as if to receive the offerings placed in it, rather than to the offerings on the burning altar). The serpent on the left is larger and has a red crest and beard, the other serpent being smaller, with neither crest or beard. Between the serpents, under the niche, is a painted flaming altar in the form of a metal brazier. On top of the brazier are eggs. Plants are in the background, and stylized candelabra with festoons border the painting on the sides. Not. Scavi, 1927, 52 with photograph. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.26, no.41B)
