V.1.7 Pompeii. March 2009. Niche on east wall of the peristyle.
According to Boyce the niche was coated with white stucco and in its floor were three holes for statuettes. It used to have several iron nails driven into the wall beside the niche at the level of its floor. Perhaps this was to hold in place an ornamental cornice of wood, as suggested by Mau.
