An altar to the Mother Goddesses is reported in the later 17th century at or near Castlecary, Stirlingshire, Scotland, on the line of the Antonine Wall between Forth and Clyde. The Rev. John Horsley, the last antiquary to view it, saw two fragments which he believed came from separate altars, an interpretation followed by subsequent commentators. This paper, drawing upon early written and visual records, puts the case for the fragments, now lost, as belonging to a single altar.
