IX.3.13 Pompeii. March 2009.   North wall of caupona, with remains of stairs in north-west corner, and doorway to dwelling. On the west wall, on the left, under the stairs would have been a lararium painting, now disappeared.  Luckily both Fiorelli and Sogliano wrote a good description. 
Fiorelli told us that there was a Genius flanked by Lares, the caricature of a male head, and two gladiators in combat.  Sogliano reported that the painting was done in red monochrome on white plaster, and showed a Genius with patera and corncupocia, sacrificing at the altar in the middle of two Lares with rhyton and situla.
