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 Boyce, in the west wall of the kitchen which was located on the lower floor were three arched niches. The only one well-enough preserved to be measured was 1.30m above the floor, 0.30 high x 0.40 wide x 0.20 deep. These were called lararia in Not. Scavi, 1883, 347.
See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.74, no.347)  
According to Giacobello, description from west wall of kitchen – no longer conserved. Sogliano described – near to the entrance to the garden one finds the corridor that led to the kitchen and to two rooms. In the kitchen there was a latrine, the niche of the Penates, and on the south wall a painted lararium with the Genius, the two Lares, and two serpents below.

VIII.2.29 Pompeii, on right, looking down to lower level at rear (partly VIII.2.30 on left). September 2005.  According to Jashemski, on the lower level at the rear of VIII.2.29, the western house, two flights of stairs led down to a terrace. 
In the eastern house, VIII.2.30, the rooms at the rear opened onto a narrow portico (2.20m wide) supported by columns joined by a wooden fence. A few steps led down from this portico to the small garden which had been built over and beyond the city wall by constructing a support wall on the lava ledge. In the middle of the garden was a pool.
On the street level, the rooms at the rear of this double house opened onto two wide terraces from which there would have been a magnificent view.
