Section I. Religion and forms of devotion

The two walls relating to “Gods, goddesses and ministers of worship” bring together “sacred” inscriptions, or rather those linked to worship or connected in various ways to the public and private religious sphere. They thus offer rich evidence of the official or popular divinities that enjoyed a widespread following, and of domestic worship. The epigraphs are engraved on altars, bases or other objects offered to the divinity – ­­­­often following the fulfilment of a vow – or placed in memory of the construction, restoration or consecration of a sacred place. Figurative elements referring to the divinity or his or her cult are sometimes present. Inscriptions in honour of holders of priestly office are also displayed on the walls.
