Corbridge has altars and dedications to a wide range of deities, who originated from all over the Empire. This altar is a prime example of the hybrid nature of Roman religion, with Brigantia (a Celtic goddess) being linked with Juno Caelestis (the Syrian consort of Jupiter Dolichenus). The army helped to spread the worship of eastern gods such as Dolichenus and Caelestis.
