This paper deals with an altar dedicated to the goddess Salacia. Salacia was known as the wife of the god Neptune, and this is the first monument to this goddess in Dalmatia and only the second anywhere else in the Roman Empire. This fact alone means that the discovery and publication of such a rare monument contributes to new knowledge on Roman religion both on the eastern Adriatic coast and in the Empire as a whole. The altar was found in Trogir, where it was walled into another structure as a spolia during Late Antiquity.
