An incense altar dedicated to the goddess Artemis. Note the representation of an altar (with flames) on the altar.  On the left side of the carved altar, a female is bringing an offering while on the right a female musician is playing a double flute.

Note also the five-line Greek inscription above the carved altar, and another on the rim of this altar.  A woman named Cominia Junia set up this altar.  It was found in the agora.
