V.1.23 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 17, north wall of kitchen area, with bench. According to Boyce, in the kitchen on the wall at the side of the hearth was a lararium painting.  In the middle was an altar around which a serpent was coiling and on the right of it stood the Genius. On the left stood a Lar, the second Lar stood behind the Genius. Underneath there were another two serpents, further on the right side the figure of river Sarnus reclined, crowned with reeds and with a jar at his elbow. The background was filled with plants.
See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.32, no.79)  Nothing remains of the painted Lararium today.
Sogliano described the lararium and placed it at V.1.10, the kitchen at the rear entrance doorway. In 1879, when his book was published, he described the lararium as a “representation of the Lares with Genius now destroyed, the plaster has fallen, and only the Sarnus figure remains sitting and crowned…..”.
See Sogliano, A., 1879. Le pitture murali campane scoverte negli anni 1867-79. Napoli: (p.15, no.37) Sogliano quotes Bull.Inst.1876, p.246.
