Old undated photograph courtesy of the Society of Antiquaries, Fox Collection. This incorporated a lararium with the likenesses of Egyptian deities, Isis, Osiris and Harpocrates. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.122).  According to Boyce, on the east wall was a shrine for Egyptian deities, which had disappeared before Helbig made his descriptions.
Helbig’s descriptions were taken from the Pomp. Ant. Hist.  Below the lararium niche was a brick altar standing on the floor of the room, coated with red stucco and with a yellow candelabrum painted on it. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.44, no.141)

The wall was divided into two areas by a painted candelabra, each of the two areas contained a painted panel.

According to Schefold found on the west wall of triclinium was the remains of wall painting of Heros, Eros and Nymphe.  See Schefold, K., 1962. Vergessenes Pompeji. Bern: Francke. (T. 168, 1).
According to PAH 1, 3, 52-54, 16th March 1811, the paintings in the middle of the walls were in a bad state when excavated.  Because of this, one could not know what they represented.
