I.10.3 Pompeii. December 2006. Niche on east wall of fauces.
Fröhlich described a painted round altar, small snake, two Lares and an inscription “Felix aeris IV as, Florus X”.   See Fröhlich, T., 1991, Lararien und Fassadenbilder in den Vesuvstädten.  Mainz: von Zabern.  (L13 p.255).   Varone refers to the inscription as painted in red on a small aedicule located in the vestibulum. “Felix aeris as(sibus) IV, Florus X”.  
According to Varone, CIL IV 7339 is translated as “Felix for four asses, Florus for ten”. See Varone, A., 2001, Erotica Pompeiana: Love Inscriptions on the Walls of Pompeii.  Rome: L’ Erma di Bretschneider. (p.154). See Varone, A. and Stefani, G., 2009. Titulorum Pictorum Pompeianorum, Rome: L’erma di Bretschneider  (p.120 for a drawing of the graffito, which Varone and Stefani say is no longer conserved).

On the back wall is a painted round altar around which a small snake winds.
The altar is flanked by two pines and two Lares.

I.10.3 Pompeii. 1937. Niche on east wall of fauces. 
The red inscription “Felix aeris IV as, Florus X.” can be seen below the garland in the niche.
Comparing our photos and the original in NdS, and the angle of the graffiti recorded by Varone, show that Boyce’s photo in plate 14,2 is reversed.
His description saying the snake is “advancing r.” must therefore be taken to mean “from the right”.

I.10.3 Pompeii. March 2009. Niche on east wall of fauces. According to Boyce, this shallow arched niche was painted white like the walls of the room, but coated with a finer stucco. A marble slab formed its floor.
Above the painted round altar in crude red letters was the graffito CIL IV 7339. Beneath the slab of marble which formed the floor of the niche was scratched; LARES AVGVSTOS.  [CIL IV 8282 – Lares Augustos]
