Pagan Eye: Altar Stone at the Verulamium Museum

Here's a picture of another item relating to Roman religion that is on display in the Verulamium Museum at St Albans. If you read my blog regularly you might remember that last week I posted a photo of a mosaic depicting a god - probably a sea god.

The description on the wall next to the altar says:
Stone altar found at Clifton, Westmorland. On the left side is a jug and on the right, a patera. Both of these objects were used to make offerings. The inscription reads: "To Jupiter best and greatest, and to the Genius of this place. Surbrius Pollinaris, princeps of the First cohort of V(...) (set this up)."
My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures.

If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to badwitch1234@gmail.com Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
