The Romans brought their gods and mythology to Britain but British culture and religion also influenced the Romans. Often a combination of Roman and British gods were worshipped together.

This shallow metal bowl, called a patera, was used for offerings during religious rituals. These rituals would often take place at an altar. The handle is decorated with a floral design and stamped 'FLORVS F’.
