This altar — not accidentally for sure — comes from one of the most important centres of Mithras’ cult, which had been one of the leading economic centres of the Danubian provinces as well. Poetovio had been a transit station concerning any economic connection between the city of Rome and Illyricum: also acting as a go-between in the religious and spiritual connections of Rome and the region of Pontus at the same time.
