VI.15.5 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 1, atrium.    Altar on east wall of the atrium composed of three arched niches, all of different sizes, and all three painted in red on the inside. In front of the niches are two brick altars, with the remains of painted plaster. According to Boyce, in the east wall of the atrium to the right of the entrance is a small recess done in the period of the First Style. It was evidently converted into a domestic sacellum at some later time. The back wall of the recess contains a large rectangular niche. This extends across almost its entire breadth, bordered by two pilasters. Later, it may have been in the time of the Second, or as late as the Fourth Style, three small irregular arched niches were cut, none of the same size. On the floor between them were set two masonry altars. The interior walls of the niches were coated with red, the altars with yellow stucco in imitation of marble.
There is still another niche of irregular shape in the wall above the First Style cornice of the original niche. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p. 54-5, no.212, with Pl. 40, 1)
