V.3.7 Pompeii. March 2009. West wall of garden area. Lararium lower zone.
The red plaster was painted with an aedicula façade within which stood the painted figure of Ceres. She was wearing a crown of ears of grain and held a torch in her left hand and a sheaf of grain in her right. Boyce contrasts the delicacy of this painting with the coarser and more familiar lararium art above. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14.  (112, p. 38, Pl 36, 2).
