VI.9.2 Pompeii. About 1830. Room 38, kitchen, lararium painting. This was painted on a white plaster panel.
In the centre was a serpent coiled around an omphalos or an altar and on each side stood a Lar.
According to Boyce, the altar was a blue omphalos, the Lares wore bright violet Phrygian caps, blue tunic and red Pallium (cloak). 
Each held a rhyton and situla. Each Lar was standing between two laurel trees. A garland was above.
See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (174, Pl: 21,2).
Helbig described the altar as an omphalos.
Giacobello said that Boyce erroneously described the altar as an omphalos.
Both Frohlich and Giacobello say the lararium was on the west wall, above the hearth.
