HGE12 Pompeii. December 2006. Lararium with altar, south and east wall. According to Boyce, in an open court was a sacrarium, apparently dedicated to Hercules and Bacchus. Upon the yellow background of the rear wall of a deep niche were painted the attributes of Hercules – a large skyphos and a club. In the pediment on the wall above the niche was painted the figure of Bacchus, accompanied by two flying cupids holding a wreath, one on each side of him. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14.  (p.97, no.479)
