Square altar found at the entrance into the Aslan Cami, now in the Sinop museum (104 x 46 cm). The term brothers here may be literal, but it may also be used in the sense of fellow-members in an association devoted to the god (cf. Poland 1909, 55; Harland 2009, 63-81).
To good fortune. The vowing brothers (or: The brothers who have made a vow), Aelius Threption Pontianus and Severus Macer, dedicated this to god Hypsistos (“Highest”).
