V.2.14 Pompeii. March 2009. Niche Lararium in north wall of shop.
According to Boyce, this niche had a projecting floor and its inside walls were coated with white stucco and outlined with red stripes.
He also mentioned that in Mau’s (1894) description of V.2.13, a cylindrical altar of travertine was found in the rear room.
Boyce thought there was confusion between the text and the plans of the rooms, and in fact the altar was found in V.2.14.
When the book was written, the altar was on display in V.2.14.
However, the Notizie degli Scavi di Antichità, 1896, p. 438, does not record the discovery of this altar.
