Marble altar found in the marketplace.

For good fortune! This was dedicated to the household of the Augusti, to the sacred Senate and the People of Rome, to the Council and People of Philippopolis, to the goddess Demeter and Kore, and to the associates (synētheis) of Homonoia (i.e. Concord personified). Tiberius Claudius Claudianus Quintillianus and his son Tiberius Claudius Varius Quintillianus set up the altar from their own resources.
