IX.3.12 Pompeii. 1872 drawing of lararium painting on the rectangular pilaster opposite the oven. According to Boyce and Frohlich, the large rectangular pilaster opposite the oven used to be decorated with white stucco to a height of about two metres. It was painted on three sides. On the main side it was painted with the Genius pouring his libation onto a cylindrical altar with offerings, around which a large serpent was coiled. The tail of the serpent continued onto the left side of the pillar, where there was a large tree. A second tree stood to the left of the altar painted on the main side. On the third side the figure of the Genius appeared again, standing on the stern of a ship which had its sails spread. Sogliano called attention to the unusually brown tinge of the flesh of both these figures of the Genius. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p. 83 and pl. 20).
