Oolitic limestone altar with relief, probably of Mars. A warrior-god stands frontally within a round-headed niche on the front of an altar. Above is a false pediment with a bolster on each side, the one on the right ornamented with a rosette. He is bare-headed with cascading locks on each side of his face. He wears a tunic with overfold, and holds a spear in his right hand and a circular targe with pronounce boss in his left hand.
