Red sandstone altar, with faint inscription and decorated sides. Dedicated to Fortune the Home-bringer, to Aesculapius and to Salus. The altar was set up by the freedmen and slaves in the household of a Roman officer, Titus Pomponius Mamilianus Rufus Antistianus Funisulanus Vettonianus, who was the legatus of the 20th legion at Chester, circa AD 100.
