I.8.18 Pompeii. Old photo of lararium on the south wall in the kitchen. According to Giacobello, this is the lararium in the kitchen of I.8.18. She shows a contemporary photograph to confirm this. According to Fröhlich, in a 1941 archive photograph it was said to be in the atrium of I.8.17 Casa dei Quattro Stili. He considered the niche remains in I.8.17 did not have enough room on its left side to fit in the left Lar and serpent. He attributed it to an unspecified house in insula I.8, because from 1937 to 1941 this was the only place excavations took place. See Giacobello, F., 2008.
