A sacred spring in Stockstadt
In the year 166 AD renovations were carried out on a sacred spring next to the beneficiarius station in Stockstadt. The shrine was furnished with altars by a beneficiarius. A spring with healing water is depicted - the altar is dedicated to the nymphs with the sobriquet "Apollinares". Apollo was also the god of healing.
The secondary sides of the altar are also decorated: there is a depiction of a tree and a fish, which represents the importance of water in nature. On another side a jug with a sacrificial bowl is depicted
