This altar was erected by the citizens of Girona, Spain in honor of Philip (jr). The altar was preserved due to its reuse as the foot of the high altar in Sant Marti Sacosta.
The inscription reads:
M IVLIO
PHILIPPO
NOBILIS
SIMO CAE
SARI
R P GER
When translated should read: “To M. Julius Philippus, most noble Caesar, the people of Girona (Gerunda)”
