A now-lost inscribed altar of a probable Julio-Claudian date was found by T. Mommsen among the stones of Aquileia. The inscription described the dedication of a grove.

On its left and right sides, the altar recorded dedications to Dis Pater and (H)era, respectively. On its front the name of the dedicant appeared, a consul’s aide (acc(ensus) co(n)s(ularis)) and local sevir at Florentia, one Q. Cervonius Chryseros, who built “the grove, the enclosure wall, the altars, the mound (? molem), and the seats” (lucum, maceriem, aras, molem, [s]edilia). The dedication to Dis Pater suggests a funerary context, which leads Chioffi to identify the molis as a tomb monument of some ill-defined type (perhaps an irregular mound?). A Roman soldier serving in Lower Germany at Carvium (Herwen) was buried by his two heirs ad molem, “near (or at) the mound” (AE 1939, 130). The same Chryseros perhaps appears as the owner of a slave, Fausta, who in fulfillment of a vow dedicated another monument to Dis Pater at Aquileia (CIL 5.35*).
