VI.5.14 Pompeii. 1930s photo of lararium by Tatiana Warscher.
According to Boyce, it had a solid base with two heavy walls forming a rectangular niche, surmounted by a gable roof with a simple pediment.
The walls inside were covered with unpainted white stucco.
In the floor was embedded a square block of marble, in which was cut a rectangular hole.
It was as if this was meant to hold the pivot upon which turned a door to close the shrine.

VI.5.14 Pompeii. December 2005. Looking west through doorway into kitchen area, towards latrine in north-west corner. The north-west corner of this room, the latrine, shows that today there is no doorway of  VI.5.11 here, as shown on Eschebach plan. VI.5.11, steps to an independent upper floor, is now to the north of this corner, fronting onto Vicolo di Modesto, and is completely separate from here.
According to CTP, the north-west corner of the house at VI.5.14 was excavated in 1817, as well as the pseudoperistyle of VI.5.10 and atrium area of VI.5.9. The street wall at the north-west corner of the house at VI.5.14 collapsed and was reconstructed, which may provide the reason why Tascone, Mau and Eschebach, all indicated a rear doorway of this house immediately south of the stairway, which, rightfully should be assigned a number. 
The doorway is delineated by Russo’s map of 1817, and later by Mazois, Fiorelli – Sorgente, and Zangemeister (1865).  Today the number VI.5.11 is not in situ but it has been assigned by the SANP to the staircase.
