Abstract: Let $p$ be an odd prime. It is known that the symplectic group $Sp_{2n}(p)$ has two (algebraically conjugate) irreducible representations of degree $(p^{n}+1)/2$ realized over $\mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{{\epsilon}p})$, where ${\epsilon}= (-1)^{(p-1)/2}$. We study the integral lattices related to these representations for the case $p^{n} \equiv 1 \bmod 4 $. (The case $p^{n} \equiv 3 \bmod 4 $ has been considered in a previous paper.) We show that the class of invariant lattices contains either unimodular or $p$-modular lattices. These lattices are explicitly constructed and classified. Gram matrices of the lattices are given, using a discrete analogue of Maslov index.
