VI.4.3 Pompeii. December 2004. Looking west  from entrance. According to Boyce, in the west wall of the room with the counter were the ruins of a niche. Its walls were coated with white stucco and decorated with coloured spots. Its floor was a projecting tile. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.45, no.150).
According to Garcia y Garcia due to the bombing, the niche to the west of the thermopolium has sadly dsiappeared. Also lost was the recess, perhaps for a bed in the south-east of the small rear room. See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.75)
