According to Boyce, in the N. wall of the viridarium, to the left of the entrance door, a deep, square niche (0.84 square, d. 0,82, h. above the floor 1.15) is set in the wall.
Its floor projects slightly in the form of a ledge and beneath it runs a delicate cornice of modelled and painted stucco. 
On the wall below the niche a rectangular panel is marked off by a moulding which runs around all four sides. 
The side walls of the niche are adorned at their outer edges, each with a stucco pilaster fitted with curious capitals, one higher than the other. 
In the centre of the back wall is a small aedicula facade formed by two columns (h. 0.25) which rest upon a heavy projecting ledge adorned with a cornice of stucco and support a pediment. 
The back wall within the aedicula is painted in imitation of marble. 
In this miniature shrine must have stood a statuette. 
On the right side wall of the niche is a large wreath (diam. 0.70) of laurel and within it coils a serpent, all done in stucco relief. 
Around the top of the three inside walls of the niche runs another stucco cornice. 
In the floor is a rectangular depression for offerings.
This shrine was called the "Double Lararium", because above the niche we have described there is another, similar to it in shape and size. 
But in this upper niche no traces of a cult were found and, in the absence of any real parallels to such a double shrine, it is simpler to regard the upper niche as a place of storage, comparable, perhaps, to the niches in the bases of the aediculae of the houses of Obellius Firmus and the Principe di Napoli (Nos. 67, 214).

VII.3.13 Pompeii. March 2009. South-west corner of garden area. Passage to kitchen, and two cubicula.
In the kitchen, there was a lararium painting, not conserved, height 0.59m, width 2.07m.
The genius poured a libation on an altar and on each side stood a Lar with rhyton and situla.
In the lower zone were the two serpents confronted at an altar.

Basalt slab with a dedication from the Sacred banquet of Psammetico II, sovereign of twenty sixth dynasty of Egypt.  It was reused as a threshold to the Triclinium.  Fiorelli states that this was found in the Triclinium of VII.3.11 which is linked to VII.3.13.   See Pappalardo, U., 2001. La Descrizione di Pompei per Giuseppe Fiorelli (1875). Napoli: Massa Editore. (p.86). Now in Naples Archaeological Museum where it is shown as being found in the Casa del Doppio Larario.
