VI.13.2 Pompeii. 1878. Altar in north-east corner of peristyle. Old painting showing the decoration of the lararium. Boyce describes a rectangular podium with yellow stucco bordered with red stripes. On each of the two free sides is a serpent coiling towards a flaming altar on the free corner. The serpents and the flaming altar are in stucco relief. On each wall above is a Lar with rhyton and situla. There must have originally been an aedicula with the roof supported by a single column at the one free corner of the podium. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14.  (p. 52, 193, Pl. 34,4).
