According to Boyce, in the north wall of the main room (of VI.14.18/19) is a rectangular niche, set 2.10 m above the floor.
It is set in a section of the wall coated with a special panel of white stucco bordered with red stripes.
The inside walls are coated with the same white stucco.
The floor of the niche projects slightly from the surface of the wall.
In the centre of it is set a masonry block to serve either as a base for a statuette or as an altar.
