VII.1.8 Pompeii. December 2007. Room 8, anteroom of women’s baths, looking south from changing room 11. Doorway leading to praefurnium 7 is on left. Doorway to east portico B and gymnasium C is on right. According to Boyce, on the east wall (left), was a painted single serpent coiling towards an altar with offerings. He described it as being above the small arched opening that passed the conduit that supplied water for the labrum of the women’s calidarium 9. This would be somewhere in the vicinity of the large white patch on the wall. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14.  (p. 95, 472).
