IX.6.7 Pompeii. May 2005. 
Looking south from entrance doorway, into large kitchen (room “p” on plan) with remains of hearth (on left of entrance doorway under the window), a tub/basin against the east wall and doorway to room “s” on east side of peristyle of IX.6.5.  According to Mau, the entrance doorway (at IX.6.7) was originally 2,11 wide so he assumed that here, at one time, some industry was done, but that it was later narrowed to 1.06. In the last times of the house, "p" was the kitchen with hearth leaning against the north wall, and above it was a square window.  Against the east wall, a tub/basin was leaning (2.24 x 0.76 measured externally, and 0,65 high) with a hole near the bottom, which, however, was completely filled with various stones added with mortar: room "q" was the latrine with small window that narrowed towards the vicolo; rooms "r" and "s" could be considered as cupboards/storerooms and each had a window into the kitchen, which for its part had a small window near to the south-west corner onto the peristyle, and in the same corner a niche (0.40 high x 0.33 wide) that could have been used as a lararium or for putting a light, or for the figurines of the Lares: a lararium painting was not found.
See Mau in BdI 1880, (p.231)
According to Boyce, in the west wall was a small niche which may have been used for either lamp or lararium.

Looking south from entrance doorway, into large kitchen (room “p” on plan) with remains of hearth (on left of entrance doorway under the window), a tub/basin against the east wall and doorway to room “s” on east side of peristyle of IX.6.5.

According to Mau, the entrance doorway (at IX.6.7) was originally 2,11m wide so he assumed that here, at one time, some industry was done, but that it was later narrowed to 1.06m.  In the last times of the house,

Room "p" was the kitchen with hearth leaning against the north wall, and above it was a square window. Against the east wall, a tub/basin was leaning (2.24 x 0.76 measured externally, and 0,65 high) with a hole near the bottom, which, however, was completely filled with various stones added with mortar.

Room "q" was the latrine with small window that narrowed towards the vicolo.

Rooms "r" and "s" could be considered as cupboards/storerooms and each had a window into the kitchen, which for its part had a small window near to the south-west corner onto the peristyle, and in the same corner a niche (0.40 high x 0.33 wide) that could have been used as a lararium or for putting a light, or for the figurines of the Lares: a lararium painting was not found.
