VII.4.59 Pompeii. House of the Black Wall, c.1862. Looking north in peristyle o.nThe east side having a wall with half columns against it. Photograph courtesy of Society of Antiquaries. Fox Collection. See Garcia y Garcia, L., 2006. Danni di guerra a Pompei. Rome: L’Erma di Bretschneider,  p.100, fig. 222. According to Boyce, in the south-west corner of the peristyle was the doorway to the kitchen. In this kitchen was a niche and Lararium. The niche had its interior walls painted with spots of many colours. Painted on the wall to the right of the niche was a Lar wearing a yellow tunic and green pallium, carrying rhyton and situla. Behind the Lar and somewhat bigger, was Vulcan holding tongs in his right hand and his left resting on a shield. The figures on the left side of the niche had vanished.
In the lower zone was a serpent beside and altar. Boyce made a note that Avellino thought that Vulcan’s appearance in the Lararium painting was a reference to the business of the owner. The shops at numbers 60 and 61 to the right of this house, were apparently owned by a bronze worker. See Boyce G. K., 1937. Corpus of the Lararia of Pompeii. Rome: MAAR 14. (p.66, no.283)  See Avellino, F.M., 1840. Descrizione di una casa disotterrata negli anni 1832,1833 e 1834….. Naples.
