Look here, Iupiter.
this altar bears your name,
all-seeing, greatest and highest.
Part the clouds for only a moment and look here,
father of all, much honored, lightning maker,
look here and accept this offering and make sacred this place.
If anything is displeasing to you, accept this wine and remove my fault.
I took some liberties with this one, since it isn't officially an altar for the state, but I still washed beforehand and wore my chiton and covered my head with a veil. The Festival of Iupiter was over the weekend, and Corey and I got the stones for this altar, but he really wanted to do the stonework himself, so he did. He is definitely a hands on guy, and I think that even he was set on things being done well because of the lightning strike along the side of this tree. The altar is right beneath it, on the NW axis from the center.
I did not get to do the niches, but that might be best until I decide which statues I want to use. I'm eyeing a really nice one for Neptune, but it's more than I can spend right now.
