VI.11.19 Pompeii. December 2007. Household altar near east wall of atrium.  According to Boyce, against the east wall of the atrium, to the left of the entrance, stands an altar of tufa*. This altar was apparently coated with a layer of stucco in the late days of the city. On the wall above it were painted the two serpents confronted at a painted altar furnished with a pine cone. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.51, no.188). * note on page 51 reads – according to Pernice, “the altar dates from the earlier Tufa Period and still stands against the tufa wall where it was originally placed”.  * see Pernice, Hellenistische Tische, 66 and pl.40,1.
