Found a link to the article below on Archaeological News. Amazing find! I’d love to be able to see it.

To my friend on the right side of the pond — if you get to visit the site, send me a picture? — ONE of the most important artefacts ever unearthed at the Vindolanda Roman site near Bardon Mill could also be the heaviest. The 1.5 tonne altar depicts Jupiter riding a bull and wielding an axe and thunderbolt. The inscription was dedicated by Sulpicius Pudens, prefect of the Fourth Cohort of Gauls.
