I.6.2 Pompeii. May 2006.  Painted lararium on west wall near portico.  
Fortunately, the lararium was not damaged by the bombing of 19th September 1943, whereas the nearby portico was destroyed.
According to Boyce, above a black dado there was a white panel marked off by red stripes. On the left side was an arched niche with a projecting ledge beneath it. The bust of Mercury was painted on the rear wall of the niche. On the right side of the white panel there was a large yellow serpent, raising his head to the niche.  Below the niche was a second serpent coiling around a yellow cylindrical altar. There were painted green plants with red, yellow and blue flowers, amongst them were two butterflies and three birds. Near the larger serpent there was a peacock standing amongst the plants. Across the top, there were three garlands.
