Lar, the Roman House God - statue 

The Lares Familiares, together with the Penates (gods of reserves), were the guardian spirits of a family and symbolized the wealth of the family estate. They also represented the deified spirits of deceased ancestors.

The Lares were worshipped at family homes and accompanied the family when they moved away. The cult goes probably back to primeval home burials. Lares were male.
