IX.7.21 Pompeii. May 2005. Looking east across atrium to doorway to room, according to Mau possibly used as a dining room. Leaning against the east wall of the atrium would have been the stairs leading to the rooms on the upper floor, above the north-east corner of the atrium. Under the stairs in the north-east corner would have been a storage area or cupboard. In the lower left corner of the photo, can be seen the remains of the pluteus from around the impluvium. The four brick pilasters of the Corinthian atrium are now vanished. See Mau in BdI, 1882, (p.184)

According to Mau, the left end of this room would have been a small area accessible by two doorways and separated from the corridor by a thin wall. The right end of this room was probably used as a dining room. See Mau in BdI, 1882, (p.184)
According to Eschebach these would have been the kitchen, at the right end, and storage-room for amphora, on the left end. See Eschebach, L., 1993. Gebäudeverzeichnis und Stadtplan der antiken Stadt Pompeji. Köln: Böhlau. (p.435)

Lararium wall painting of Isis Fortuna found in corridor leading to latrine of IX.7.21/2.  Now in Naples Archaeological Museum. Inventory number: 112285. According to Boyce, to the left of Fortuna is a nude man, squatting in a position appropriate to the wording painted above his head -
Cacator
Cave Malv   [CIL IV 3832].
A serpent rises on each side of him, as if he is replacing the usual altar with offerings. Below the painting a terracotta monopodium stood against the wall, perhaps serving as an altar. See Boyce G.

(L106, Picture 10,1) According to Hobson, a painting from a latrine shows the goddess Fortuna next to a man between 2 snakes, apparently advising the person entering the toilet to beware of the danger of the pollution of defecation: Cacator cave malu(m). [CIL IV 3832]. See Hobson, B., 2009. Latrinae et foricae: Toilets in the Roman World. London; Duckworth. (p.111)

He did state that it was not a phallus. Below the niche was a painted garland of red and green leaves, and below it a burning altar with a pine-cone. On either side of the altar was a yellow serpent. The serpent on the left had a red crest and beard, the head of the other was damaged. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14.
