HGW24 Pompeii. December 2006. Doorway to steps to lower level. 
According to Boyce, six steps lead down to the servants’ quarters, and in the wall beside this stair is a “piccolo larario”. This was apparently only a niche, in which a statuette of Minerva was found. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.97, no.476)  
Another niche, with a painting of the figure of Fortuna with cornucopia and rudder, was reported as being found in the Villa. See PAH, I, I, 273, dated May 1, 1773. However the location was uncertain. PAH says that it was in the entrance to a courtyard with a small room, and there was a painting of Fortuna in a small niche in the same room. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.97, no.477)  
This may be in the area accessed from HGW25, which we have not photographed yet.
