According to Boyce, this shallow rectangular niche was set into (but not in the centre of) a fine panel of wall decoration, which it disfigured.
(According to the note by Boyce, Elia had said in Not.Scavi, that these panels were painted shortly after the earthquake of 63 AD).
Both serpents coil from the left towards an altar, as in the other lararium described in the kitchen. In the background were green plants with red flowers. Not. Scavi, 1934, 287.

I.10.7 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 12, north-west corner of triclinium, with remains of skeletons. According to Civale, “in the triclinium two people had sought refuge: an adult who was discovered on the floor, his arms clutching the edge of a dining couch, and a second, younger victim his arms folded under the head and legs stretched out on the floor.  
On the ground between the adult’s feet, lay a little cloth bag containing a small hoard of 26 silver coins, amounting to just 104 sesterces.  
In the triclinium, another little heap of 48 coins was found, perhaps also the savings of one of the victims.” See Guzzo, P.G. ed. (2003): Tales from an eruption – (Civale, A: The House of the Craftsman). Milan, Electa; (p.140-41)
