IX.1.8 Pompeii. December 2007. Room in north-east corner. Looking east. This room also contained the latrine, and a lararium, according to Fiorelli. According to Boyce, the lararium was on the east wall painted on a white background with a red border. In the middle, two serpents raised their heads, one on either side of a tile embedded in the wall and projecting out as a shelf for offerings. Two Lares were above the serpents, one on either side, wreathed, wearing red tunic and green pallium and holding rhyton and patera. In the middle below the serpents was a kantharos with a small bird perched on its rim.
