VII.7.2 Pompeii. December 2005. Looking north-west across impluvium in atrium towards tablinum and peristyle. According to Boyce, near the west end of the open court of the peristyle stood a masonry altar.
It was coated with white stucco, decorated with painted red and yellow flowers.
See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p/68, no.295 and Pl.39,1) 
According to Jashemski, the peristyle garden at the rear of the tablinum was enclosed by a portico on the east, and most of the north and south sides. It was supported on both the north and south sides by three columns and one engaged column. An altar, decorated with crudely painted flowers, stood in the north-west part of the garden.
16 terracotta lamps were found in the portico. The windowed tablinum, the oecus on the south, and the exedra on the north, had views into the garden. The adjoining house, through a wide window in its large triclinium, also had a fine view into this garden.

VII.7.2 Pompeii. December 2005. Looking north from entrance along corridor from atrium to peristyle. According to Garcia y Garcia, the house at VII.7.5, linked by the south portico at the rear of this tablinum, was hit by a bomb during the night of 24th August 1943. During the night bombing on 13th September 1943, the secondary peristyle at VII.7.2 was hit. Together with the felling of the six columns, the portico was totally destroyed as well as the three rooms on the west side.
Nearly all the paintings of the II and IV style that decorated the secondary and central tablinum and the room to the north-east of this peristyle, were lost.
