HGE12 Pompeii. December 2006. North-east corner of room, with niche. Was this the kitchen? According to Boyce, in the kitchen was “un piccolo Larario…..colla pittura del genio del loco”. He thought this was probably a niche with a single serpent painted on the wall beside it. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14.  (p.97, no.480)
