IX.1.22 Pompeii. December 2007.  Room 1, atrium with household shrine in south-east corner. According to Boyce, on the top of a high masonry podium stood the elaborately decorated aedicula.  The podium was decorated along the upper edge with a double band of painted stucco relief. There was one Doric column of heavy proportions with base and two rectangular pilasters attached to the room walls. These supported heavy entablature and cornice and a roof with two pediments. The cornices which surrounded the pediments were decorated with  uadruple bands of red and blue stucco relief.  The single column was also stucco coated and painted to imitate red and yellow marble. The walls, inside and out, were painted with decorations in red, green and yellow upon the white background; ornate portals, garlands, birds, candelabra and arabesques. Against the walls within the shrine was a low step, to serve as a pedestal for the figures of the gods.
