According to Boyce, in the kitchen on the north side of the entrance corridor, a poorly preserved lararium painting was found. On the right of an altar was the Genius in a toga, on the left was the tibicen in a long white garment. On each side of them stood a Lar clad in a green and yellow tunic and red cloak. The Genius was larger than the tibicen, but the Lares were larger than the Genius. In the lower zone, two serpents were confronted at an altar, above them were garlands and in front, plants.

VII.2.25 Pompeii. September 2005. Looking east to the viridarium at the rear of the portico.
According to PPP, this is the viridarium and contains an arched niche in the east wall. Boyce thought this was the oecus. Jashemski points out that Boyce was in error, and that the area of the viridarium had been roofed to protect the paintings. Jashemski agreed with PPP and said the area at the rear was the small garden. See Bragantini, de Vos, Badoni, 1986. Pitture e Pavimenti di Pompei, Parte 3. Rome: ICCD. (p.80) See Boyce G. K., 1937.
