Jupiter Colminalis

However, the principle God of Noricum gained his prestige in still another aspect. Like Jupiter Stator (Jupiter the Stayer) in the Roman Empire, Bog or Jupiter Colminalis was the protector of Noricum and its people. He personified the State idea, which based on the divine reason.
