Inscription.

Domus Flavia. So-called, Lararium
The smaller room next to the so-called Audience Chamber is known as the Lararium because when it was discovered it had a podium at the back – accessible from two small staircases and clad in coloured marbles – interpreted as an altar for the domestic cult of the emperorís Lares. The roomís function remains uncertain. Behind it is a chamber with two flights of stairs leading out of it: one up to the upper floor of the palace and the other to a cellar where wine amphorae inscribed with the markerís name were found.

Domus Flavia. Cd. Larario
La sala minore accanto alla cd. aula Regia Ť denominata Larario, perchť quando fu scoperta aveva un basamento sul fondo – accessibile tramite due scalette e rivestito di marmi colorati – che fu interpretato come altare per il culto domestico dei Lari dellíimperatore; la funzione della sala tuttavia non Ť accertata. Alle sue spalle si trova un ambiente da cui partiva una doppia rampa di scale: una saliva al piano superiore del palazzo, mentre líaltra conduceva in una cantina, in cui furono trovate anfore da vino con inscritto il nome del produttore.
