Ancient Altars

The above picture shows some ancient Roman altars, on display in the Scottish National Museum. They are about the size and shape of tombstones, and usually include a circular indentation in the top wherein offerings were left.

Pictures or writing indicating the intended deity are on the lower part of the altar.
