Two inscriptions on two sandstone altars discovered in 1909 in the central aisle of the speleum of the second mithreaum of Stockstadt, in the province of Germania superior. The eastern god is Cautes, assimilated to the rising sun, and the western god is Cautopates, assimilated to the setting sun. T. Martialius Candidus also deposited a dedication to the goddess Virtus (= Mâ-Bellone?), again in Stockstadt (CCCA VI, 56).
