VI.7.7 Pompeii. March 2009.  Rear wall of tablinum, with window onto south portico and garden area. Looking south. According to Jashemski, the garden (excavated in 1835) at the rear of the tablinum had a roofed passageway on the south and east. She wrote, Fiorelli had said these were supported by two brick columns which were joined by a low wall.
This low wall enclosed the garden on the south and east. The top of the low wall contained a planting space. The large window in the tablinum overlooked the garden area. See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.129)

VI.7.7 Pompeii. December 2005. Kitchen, with bench and hearth against the west wall. According to Boyce, on the north wall of the kitchen was a lararium painting. Only a fragment was preserved, painted on a white background. In the centre was the Genius with a cornucopia and patera standing before a burning altar. Behind him was a camillus, above and behind the altar was the figure of the tibicen. On either side of this group stood the Lares in yellow tunic and green pallium. Beyond the Lar on the left was a small popa pushing a hog towards the right. The corresponding figure on the right of the right Lar was missing, as was the whole outer section of the plaster on this side. In the lower zone was the customary altar with the two serpents. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.47, no.163)
Boyce added a note that said Helbig (58) wrongly assigned this shrine to VI.7.9. See Helbig, W., 1868. Wandgemälde der vom Vesuv verschütteten Städte Campaniens. Leipzig: Breitkopf und Härtel. (58)
