VII.7.19 Pompeii. September 2005. Looking south from entrance directly into atrium. According to Eschebach, in the middle of the south wall would have been a lararium. On the left can be seen doorways to an oecus with stairs to upper floor, and a triclinium fenestratum.
See Eschebach, L., 1993. Gebäudeverzeichnis und Stadtplan der antiken Stadt Pompeji. Köln: Böhlau. (p.302)
According to Boyce, in the centre of the south wall of the large central room was a rectangular niche.  In the west wall, near the floor, was an arched niche. The latter was called the Lararium by Fiorelli, although the former was more like the usual shrine.
