VIII.5.37 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 1, aedicula lararium in atrium.  
On the front of the podium was a painted round altar flanked by two serpents.  On the altar Two eggs and a pine cone were painted on the altar. See Fröhlich, T., 1991. Lararien und Fassadenbilder in den Vesuvstädten. Mainz: von Zabern. (L96, T: 8,3).
According to Boyce, this aedicula lararium had paintings and statuettes when found. The tympanum was white, bordered with a red stripe and painted on it were small gladiatorial arms. In the middle a helmet, to the left greaves, and to the right a shield and above it a dagger. Mau thought because of these paintings, the owner of the house may have been a retired gladiator. On the back wall within the aedicula was the lararium painting consisting of Genius and two Lares. When excavated, six bronze statuettes were found in this aedicula. They were of Aesculapius, Apollo, Mercury, Hercules and the two Lares. In addition to the statuettes, a bronze lamp with a crescent moon on its handle was also found.
