In the lower zone were two serpents confronted at an altar furnished with two eggs. In the background were plants. Below the serpents, there were roughly sketched drawings of a ham, a hog’s head, sausages, and other foods.
Above the panel and hanging down on each side, were painted garlands. Not. Scavi, 1897, 199.  See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.55, no.217, and Pl.22, 2)
