Zevi considered room z may have been a wooden lararium with a marble base. See Zevi, F., 1964. La Casa Reg IX.5.18-21 a Pompei e le sue pitture: Studi Miscellanei 5. Roma: Bretschneider. (p.11, T: IX,1).
According to Sogliano, found in the second cubiculum on the left side of the peristyle, was the Genio Familiare. See Sogliano, A., 1879. Le pitture murali campane scoverte negli anni 1867-79. Napoli: (p.10, no.11) According to Boyce, on the east wall of the cubiculum was a lararium painting, the upper part had fallen.  From a branch of the tree hung a head of a stag. On the left of the tree, the figure of a small Genius is found, holding in his left, together with the usual cornucopia, a rudder which rested upon a green globe at his feet. To the left was a small altar, with the serpent gliding towards it. Further to left, was a huge tripod.  On the right stood a male figure, nude except for a green cloak, in his left he held two long spears or poles. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.86, no.427)
