V.2.i Pompeii. December 2007. Room 9, remaining corner of a wall painting on west wall. According to Mau, on the west wall only the lower corner was conserved.  He recognised that near to the right margin was the foot of a large chair. To the left of this chair, possibly a sceptre and below, an eagle.
He thought, without doubt, this would have been Giove. See Mau, A., 1893. Mitteilungen des Kaiserlich Deutschen Archaeologischen Instituts, Roemische Abtheilung Volume VIII. (p.46)
Sogliano thought, in NdS, that the remaining fragment of this painting on the west wall would have represented the child Hercules strangling the serpents in the presence of Zeus.

V.2.i Pompeii. December 2007.  Room 11, kitchen.  According to Mau above this bench or hearth were the remains of a painting of the 2 Lares.  Near them a serpent was seen coiled around an altar, on which was a large pine cone.See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p.307). Boyce also mentioned that a man was leading a reluctant hog. He also said the lower zone was not well preserved and only a few traces of the foliage remained, through which the usual serpents must have glided.

V.2.i Pompeii.  December 2007.  Room 11.  Kitchen.  Wall at south end near the caldarium showing a hole in the floor, used to heat the bath rooms.  On the left in the south east corner are the remains of a masonry foundation, possibly to support the lead vessel in which water was kept for the bath.  The stone puteal in the form of a Doric column does not cover a cistern mouth.  See Allison, P. M. Pompeian Households: An online companion.  http://www.stoa.org/projects/ph/rooms?houseid=16#293 (room s).  On the right on the west wall is the door (now gated) to the latrine.
