If you want to signify that the altar is dedicated to someone important,
you could try repeating the referent each time: *Qun lat*, *joH'a'* *lat*,
etc. Or use a longer phrase: *qeylIS quvmoHmeH lat*. By seeing that the
referent is continually mentioned, the reader will hopefully conclude that
they're someone important.

(*ghaH lat* might have a similar effect, because it's an unusual phrasing,
but that suggestion would no doubt be controversial.)
