IX.14.4 Pompeii. 1911 drawing showing profiles of arca or money chest. The chest had wooden walls reinforced with thick and thin iron strapping, forming a basket in style. On the top was a door with two flanking locks. Underneath was a masonry base. Three objects were found inside, but it is believed these were probably on the top and fell in when the cover collapsed.
- An iron shovel, thin, crescent shaped. 
- An iron oil lamp with three bronze chains, collected in fragments, from which it could be suspended, with a bronze wick snuffer. 
- A whetstone of sandstone, well worn by use.

IX.14.4 Pompeii. May 2005. Aedicula household lararium shrine 32 in atrium. 
According to Boyce, above a masonry base built into the north-west corner of the atrium, one Doric column and two pilasters support a roof of two pediments.
These pediments are set at right angles to each other.
The walls within were painted white with narrow green and red bands, the two tympana being red.
An arched niche is on the south side, probably for storage.
On the two walls in the shrine is a low step, on which were found three statuettes -
a herm of white marble, a terracotta bust of a male figure, and a second bust of a male figure.
Also found within the shrine were – a terracotta lamp, a coin of Caligula, a small terracotta altar in the form of a vase, and an iron container for coals.
Found in the niche at the base of the aedicula was a terracotta lamp fitted with a ring.
