According to Boyce, there was a fragmentary lararium painting in the kitchen.
Only the figures of the Lares were preserved.
Boyce stated that the kitchen was in number VI.11.12, which this would have been linked to.

According to Garcia y Garcia, the same bomb that destroyed VI.11.8 also caused the destruction of several rustic rooms in the south of house VI.11.12.
These would have had their dividing walls to the south with VI.11.10, and to the west with VI.11.8.
In the 1980’s he said, all the fallen structures were in total ruin and abandoned.
