According to Boyce, this had been called a lararium, but he thought it was most unlike one.

Matz (in Bull. Inst.) thought it may have been a receptacle for the arms of the master of the house.

See Bullettino dell’Instituto di Corrispondenza Archeologica (DAIR), 1868, p. 194.

He reached this conclusion by the painting of a sword in a red sheath found on the yellow stucco of the rear wall.

VII.2.18 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 21, triclinium. According to Richardson, when found, the floor of this room was paved with white mosaic around a panel of squares and triangles of coloured marble.  Also found here were the remains of three dining couches with beautiful mounts of bronze inlaid with silver. These have been reconstructed and are in the Naples Archaeological Museum.

According to Mau, the wooden frame and end board of one of the dining couches was completely charred, but the form was clearly indicated and the woodwork was restored.

VII.2.18 Pompeii. W.7. Detail from end of dining couch, bronze inlaid with silver. According to Breton, found on January 11th 1868, were a total of three large and magnificient dining couches. At that time, the marks where their feet had stood could still be seen in the soil. They were made of wood and bronze, inlaid with silver and copper. The wood was not preserved but could be reconstructed from the impression left in the ash. One of the couches was on display at the Museum of Naples. Near the couches were remains of pieces of bread, two large candelabra, a lamp, a bucket, a beautiful lantern surmounted by a figure of Pan, two strigils, vases and cups of bronze, and a bronze bracelet in the shape of a serpent with eyes made from small emeralds.
