V.4.7 Pompeii. December 2007. Vinarium with eight dolia. According to Boyce, a small marble altar was found in this room. It was decorated on the front face with a taenia (band), a patera (shallow dish) and an urceus (one handled jug). The upper surface was divided into two sections by a ridge down the centre. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (121; p. 40, note 2).

V.4.7 Pompeii. December 2007. Niche on west wall. According to Boyce, this large and shallow arched niche was described by Paribeni (Not. Scavi, 1902, 377) as il larario. However Boyce disagreed and thought it most unlike one.
