“The second lararium, painted in the south-eastern corner of the peristyle, was instead dedicated to the Egyptian deities: portrayed on a tall base with two serpents, converging towards two altars upon which eggs have been placed as an offering, is the family of Isis, Serapides and Harpocrates. With them is Anubis, the god of the dead who has a canine head, holding a caduceus symbolizing his assimilation with Mercury.  Next to them are the objects of the cult of Isis, which also express a domestic type of devotional practice: these include a sistrum, a cist, a silver situla in the shape of a human breast to contain holy milk, and a patera also made of silver. 
Watching over them is Uraeus, the sacred cobra.”
