IX.1.4 Pompeii. March 2009. Hearth against south wall in rear room.
According to Boyce, somewhere in this shop on an east wall was a panel of special stucco. In this panel were painted two red serpents confronted at an altar. A tile was embedded in the wall below their heads, to serve as a shelf for offerings. There does not appear to be any signs today of either a tile or painting.
See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.79)
According to Eschebach, the serpents were painted on the right pilaster of the shop room.
