The god is dressed in a Roman military costume with a Phrygian cap on his head. In his left hand he clutches the lightning bolts of the thunder god; and in the right, which is now mostly missing, he probably held a double ax. His cult was Syrian in origin and travelled back to Rome with Eastern travellers.
