- DOIROS SEGOMARI
- IEVRV ALISANV
- Doiros (son) of Segomaros has dedicated (this) to Alisanos
The inscription from Visignot, also in the Côte-d'Or, is in Latin:
- DEO·ALISANO·PAVLLINVS ❧
- PRO·CONTEDIO·FIL·SVO ❧
- Paullinus has freely and deservedly fulfilled his vow to the god Alisanus on behalf of his son Contedius
The root Alisa- of the name Alisanus is phonologically comparable to the Proto-Celtic *alisā, ‘alder’. Green, however, sees the theonym as related to the toponym Alesia, implying that he was a mountain-god.
