V.2.h Pompeii. December 2005. Looking south along entrance fauces 'a' to atrium 'd'. In the east wall of the entrance corridor, an arched niche can be seen. According to Boyce, this had a projecting floor and its walls were covered with white stucco. It was outlined, inside and outside, with red stripes. The wall beside the niche was painted with the serpents.
To the right of, and below the niche, was painted an unusual altar, resembling a brazier of bronze (see note below). Its upper surface was circular and had two handles at the sides. One of the huge serpents had its body coiled around this altar, and was raising its head to the offerings. The second serpent was painted on the wall to the left of the niche, and was raising its head to the niche, rather than the altar. The background was white and adorned with plants, across the top were painted garlands hanging from painted nails. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p. 36, no. 106, pl.10,1) 
Boyce added a note on p.37, that said a similar brazier was found with the painting of the serpents in I.7.10-12.

.2.h Pompeii. December 2005. Impluvium in atrium 'd', looking south towards tablinum (f) (in centre). According to NdS, the small atrium had an impluvium in its centre, with two cistern mouths nearby. The edge of the impluvium was covered with small irregular flakes of marble that produced the effect of a coarse mosaic. See Notizie degli Scavi, 1896, (p.422). (The atrium is referred to as ‘a’).

V.2.h Pompeii. December 2005. South side of atrium. Doorways to cubiculum ‘g’, tablinum ‘f’ (in centre), and room ‘e’ with stairs. According to NdS, the floor of the atrium was Opus signinum, and the walls were covered with a rustic white plaster, except the two walls flanking the doorway to the tablinum, which were decorated with a yellow background and a black dado. On the yellow part was a painted peacock of more or less its natural size, before which, on the wall to the right, was a basket full of grapes, and on that to the left were fruits (pomegranates?) placed on the ground. In both of the walls to the sides of the tablinum, traces of fire could be seen.

V.2.h Pompeii. December 2005. Room ‘g’ in south-east corner of the atrium, looking south. According to NdS, the cubiculum had a threshold of travertine, good flooring of signinum but in large part destroyed, walls decorated in the First Style, and with a vaulted ceiling. In the east wall, the recess for the bed could be seen. The front doorway to the room, when it was closed, could be strengthened by a transversal small beam, for which you could see the holes in the door-jambs. See Notizie degli Scavi, 1896, (p.422) where it is referred to as room d.
