VIII.2.29 Pompeii. September 2005.  Looking north across tablinum to atrium and entrance doorway. In the north-west corner of the atrium would have been a masonry lararium, (in the area to the left of the brick pilasters). According to Boyce, this lararium was later in date than the stucco of the walls of the room. The walls were in the IVth Style.
Around the base of the lararium ran a dado of marble. In this corner of the atrium the black border in the mosaic pavement was made to run around the two sides of the podium. This marked its position.
According to Mau, some other object stood here before the construction of the lararium. These would have been either the arca for the money, or a smaller and more modest lararium, which was then enlarged.

According to Giacobello, only the podium survives of the aedicula in the north-west corner of the atrium.
