In the Roman empire deities which were not part of normal Roman beliefs were often readily adopted and worshiped. On the frontiers, such as Scotland, soldiers worshiped local gods and goddesses. This is a head of an unknown local deity. From Birrens, Scotland, 2nd century CE. (National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh, UK)
