VI.16.27 Pompeii. March 2009. Room B, atrium.  Looking east to area that used to have a dividing wall (destroyed) and was originally two rooms I and J.  According to NdS, the doorway from room H (visible on the left) led into room I which was a type of ala. Room I would have been on the north-east of the atrium. On the north wall of room I, a painted dado was preserved, painted in imitation of a coating of coloured marble. On the south side of room I, was the large room J, its north wall was destroyed. Room J opened in its entire width onto the east side of the atrium. The wall decoration of first style was very notable, preserved on the south and east. In the main part of the walls, one saw large slabs of protruding stucco, painted in imitation of coloured marble. In the frieze were the usual smaller rectangles. The dado offered a decoration imitating a perspective of small cubes arranged in horizontal rows, one above the other, each with a protruding edge. The floor was of simple soil.

VI.16.27 Pompeii. March 2009. Room B, recess in south wall of atrium.
According to Boyce, the doorway that led from the atrium to the peristyle was walled up, leaving a shallow recess in the south wall.
Within this recess, in the upper left corner, a white panel was marked off by green stripes on both sides. The figure of Jupiter was painted on the panel. He was seated upon a throne, leaning his forehead against his left hand, through the bend of this arm passed a long sceptre.
The lower end of the sceptre rested on the ground., in his right hand he held the thunderbolt. His feet were placed on a footstool and to its left stood an eagle. In the wall below the panel were embedded two broken tiles, one horizontal, the second perpendicular to the first at its west end. The wall space between the painting of Jupiter and the two tiles was decorated with plants painted on a yellow background. The horizontal tile may have served as a shelf for offerings, but the purpose of the two tiles was not clear. Found near the shrine was a terracotta votive altar. Not. Scavi, 1908, 184.  See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.59, no.226)

VI.16.27 Pompeii. May 2005. Looking across atrium B, towards south-west corner and doorway to room C. According to NdS, graffiti was found on the pilaster that divided room C from the fauces (right of doorway). On the brick plaster was seen graffiti of two concentric circles, a bird and two human heads. Between these were inscribed the numbers II II VIII VII III. By the last number was a serpent graffito, who was coiling towards the right.
Somewhat below, a doodle graffito in which a niche Lararia might be recognized. Above all the other graffiti of the numbers, the bird, etc, could be read : SALVEM
On the right side of the graffiti circles, could be seen: CoNS
