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.

VII.11.14 Pompeii. March 2009. Garden “C”, lararium and altar on west wall.  On either side were the painted Lares, smaller than the figures in the niche. Now vanished. 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.

VII.11.14 Pompeii. March 2009. Garden “C”, two small niches on west wall at the north end. According to Boyce, in the same wall to the right of the lararium were set two smaller arched niches. He could not prove whether one or both of these niches had served as a shrine. He thought it was possible that they may have originally been built as lararia and then later been replaced by the large one, described above.
