V.4.13 Pompeii. March 2009. Lararium niche in north-west corner of garden. According to Boyce, on the north side of the garden was a section coated with white stucco and marked off as a panel with broad red stripes. In it was set a large arched niche.  The corners within the arch were outlined in red, as was the shape of the niche on the surrounding wall. The rear wall was painted blue, studded with red and yellow spots and yellow stars with red centres. On the ground before the niche stood a masonry altar covered in stucco. The altar had a rectangular hollow in its upper surface. In this hollow, traces of burning were seen by the excavators. Around the corner from this niche, on the west wall of the open area which precedes the garden on the north, was a broad sheet of white plaster. On this plaster were painted two yellow serpents near a cylindrical altar with fruit, in the background were plants. In the floor below this painting were the marks left by a square masonry altar.
