VII.11.14 Pompeii. March 2009. Garden “C”, west wall. According to Boyce, above a rectangular podium a projecting arch was built against the back wall, thus forming a niche. The front part of the upper surface of the podium served as an altar for sacrifices, on the front side of the podium was a step. On the rear wall of the niche are painted Jupiter and the Genius, with a blazing cylindrical altar between them. To the right and left on the wall outside the niche were the poorly preserved figures of the Lares. The side walls and the vaulted ceiling of the niche were decorated with leafy boughs. The exterior of the structure was coated with stucco painted in several different colours.

According to Boyce, Helbig placed the Lares on the projecting walls of the arch. Fiorelli put them on the wall of the room outside the niche. Their figures have entirely disappeared but the side walls of the niche, decorated with foliage, show that they could not have been painted there.
