VII.7.23 Pompeii. September 2005. Looking west from entrance across atrium towards entrance to garden area. According to Jashemski, the peristyle garden at the rear of the atrium was enclosed on the north and west by a portico. It was supported by five masonry columns, connected by a low masonry wall in which was a terracotta puteal that gave access to the cistern below. There was a gutter along the north and west edges of the garden. On the west wall of the portico was a lararium painting, and on the floor in front of the painting was a small masonry altar. Along the south wall of the garden was a garden bench.
See Jashemski, W. F., 1993. The Gardens of Pompeii, Volume II: Appendices. New York: Caratzas. (p.188)
According to Boyce, on the west wall of the peristyle was a lararium painting of a single large serpent coiling from the right towards a yellow altar. The altar was furnished with offerings and stood on a base in the midst of plants. On the floor of the portico, in front, stood a small masonry altar coated with stucco, and having a concave upper surface.
