According to Boyce and Giacobello, in the east wall of the garden was an arched niche with a very thick projecting floor.
The side walls were yellow, and the rear wall was white, and upon it was a painting.
Of this painting only, a green tree was visible to Boyce in 1937.
On the white surface of the wall to the left of the niche, a Lar was painted in blue garments. He held as situla in his lowered right hand but his left was not preserved.
