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 disappeared.
Also lost was the recess, perhaps for a bed in the south-east of the small rear room.
