VII.4.26 Pompeii. March 2009. Looking north across shop towards rear rooms of dwelling. Fiorelli reported that on the right side of the rear was a cubiculum with a scene of a gladiatorial combat with some animals.
According to Jacobelli, this particular subject was copied several times, and may or may not be the one in a drawing by Morelli. She thinks the similar painting described by Fiorelli may be one of the copies of this fashionable composition often found at Pompeii.

VII.4.26 Pompeii. Painting by Francesco Morelli, written underneath is “Alla porta settentrionale di Pompei in Atrio non lungi dalla medesima”.
(“At the northern gate of Pompeii in an atrium not far from the same”). This would seem to indicate one of the houses in Ins.Occidentalis.
This painting by Morelli may or may not be the same one as found in this house, as the subject was copied several times, see Jacobelli, above.
The lararium, on the left, may belong to a different wall than the gladiators, but the method of Morelli’s work probably meant even if not from the same wall, it was from the same house.
Now in Naples Archaeological Museum. Inventory number ADS 574.

 VII.4.26 Pompeii. December 2007. Shop entrance to workshop/dwelling. 
According to Fiorelli, the atrium with an impluvium would have been at the rear of the shop-room, on whose right side would have been positioned the ala, the storeroom containing the stairs to the upper rooms, and the cubiculum decorated with gladiatorial scenes.
At the rear, there was a small room bordered by the corridor, as well as a triclinium with entrance from the same corridor, which in its length gave access to three other rooms, a small garden and the kitchen, which had a separate latrine, and in the wall against the hearth showed a painting with Hercules before the altar, assisted by the tibicine between the two Lares: in the lower part of the painting were two men with an amphora, and other amphorae on a cart. On the side wall, were the painted serpents and table.

 VII.4.26 Pompeii. Drawing of lararium painting. According to Boyce and Frohlich, the lararium was on the south wall of the kitchen on a white background. Frohlich wrote that the painting has now faded and vanished. On the right of a blazing altar stood the Genius, behind the altar the tibicen was visible. On the opposite side of the altar stood Hercules and behind him was a hog with a bell around its kneck. On the left of this group stood a Lar of smaller stature than the others. The Lar on the right had vanished. Below these figures were painted numerous objects, now faded, including flasks and amphorae. To the right of these objects, two young men wrestle for the possession of an amphora, each holding onto one of the handles. With their other hand they each hold onto each others hair. The two serpents were painted on an adjoining wall.

On 13th September 1943, a bomb fell destroying the corridor from the shop and another two rooms nearby. This caused the loss of wall plaster painted in the fourth style. See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider. (p.98) According to Eschebach, the kitchen would have been at the rear of the dwelling.
