    Summary (English)

    • On the acropolis of Rione Terra at Pozzuoli a lararium came to light, entirely frescoed with two overlying phases of plaster. It was inside a Roman underground chamber situated along via Duomo which retraces the decumanus maximus of Augustan date. Painted on the back wall were the winding coils of the Agathodemon snakes slithering towards a square altar. The lateral walls showed the twelve gods of Olympus, six on each side. The Dodekatheion was also frequently represented at Pompeii; the House of Pansa comes to mind but also houses IX, 11, 6; IX, 11,1; VIII, 3 and 1-12. The wall facing the entrance showed the labours of Hercules, whilst the vault was decorated with floral motifs.
