VIII.6.3 Pompeii. December 2004. Looking west. According to Boyce, on the west wall of a room which was perhaps a kitchen, was a partially preserved lararium painting. In the upper zone, the feet of the Genius, to the right of him, a Lar in red and blue tunic, again to the right a long staff, perhaps with sausages attached to it. Below the figure of the Genius, a tile was embedded in the wall to hold offerings. Below this, was a serpent (black with a yellow belly, red crest and beard) advancing towards a second serpent (smaller and all black with crest). This second serpent was coiled around a black omphalos covered with a green net and standing upon a rectangular base. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.78, no.373) 
According to Giacobello, the picture on the west wall of kitchen has not been conserved. The small service area was located in the south-west corner of the house. See Giacobello, F., 2008. Larari Pompeiani: Iconografia e culto dei Lari in ambito domestico.  Milano: LED Edizioni. (p.204)
