It is fragmented and only two parts have been preserved, which have never been published together. However, in the CER.ES Catalogue there is a restitution with both pieces in a single photograph by Ana Osorio Calvo, which is included here. Thanks to this photograph, we can confirm that they are two pieces from a single altar, as the lower part of the letters of the first line appear on the lower fragment. The smaller fragment (Fig. 1.01.04.01b) corresponds to the upper left part of the altar, where the cornice and a large rectangular focus are preserved.
