VI.2.22 Pompeii. September 2005. Aedicula niche in south wall of pseudo-peristyle.  On the right is the doorway to the large triclinium.  According to Jashemski, this peristyle garden, excavated in 1811, was enclosed by a portico on the north and part of the east and west sides. The portico was supported by five columns, red below, fluted and white above. They were joined by a low wall. There was an aedicula lararium (2.55m high) in the centre of the south wall.  
This once held a beautiful bronze statue of Apollo (Naples Archaeological Museum inv no: 5613).  Dwyer pointed out that the Apollo was not found in the niche, however, but in the north colonnade of the peristyle, according to a report of Soprastante Pasquale Scognamiglio which Dwyer found in the archives of the Soprintendenza at Naples (VIII c8, Apr 3 1811). The Apollo was immediately reburied and discovered two days later in the presence of Queen Maria Carolina.  An earlier report of Scognamiglio (Mar 21 1811) mentioned a niche identical to the one in this house.   But this house became confused with the one next door (VI.2.16/21) which became known as the House of the Apollo, and the statue was said to have been found there.  Dwyer points out that the only niche in the garden of VI.2.16/21 is modern and it is only 0.67m high. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.122 and fig 134 for the Bronze Apollo)

VI.2.22 Pompeii. W.1392. Aedicula niche lararium. According to Boyce, in the centre of the south wall of the pseudoperistyle stands a fine aedicula. On a rectangular base painted red, a heavy projecting ledge adorned with triple bands of stucco supported a platform.
On this platform rested the bases of two tall, fluted columns with bases and capitals, all coated with white stucco. The columns in turn supported a pediment. The back wall within the aedicula is hollowed out to form a niche, and painted blue.
