Papa, the Pope in Latin, would be short for Pater Patrum 🤔. It’s a clever statement, if it weren’t for the fact that the term was used to refer to bishops in general long before Pope Siricius. It would come from the Greek πάππας, which also means father, as in the Spanish papa or papá...

I am a devotee of Mithras Thank you for this interview. I think the author is right when he highlights that Roman Mithras is very different to Persian Mitra. Mithras is born mighty from birth and with a connection to His Father. The rock is a symbol of prowess and His Father is Sol. The main rite was centered on celebration of Mithras,’ victory over the bull, the bull which in Rome was similar to a dragon or an animal which normal people cant slay.

Thinking of forming a weekly group for those in the Anglosphere(USA, Canada, UK, Australia and NZ) to have a webcam call, discuss all things related to Mithras and form friends sharing a niche interest:)

Richard Gordon suggests the object on the Miles step is a bull’s hindquarter.
“In the light of the sacrificial scene on the altar of Flavius Aper (Poetovio), the interpretation as a bull’s hind-quarter rather than shoulder is to be preferred. The scene at Ostia is perfectly in keeping with other evidence suggest- ing that (junior) Mithraic grades fulfilled specific manual tasks within the cult, in the case of Miles, butchery of sacrificial animals.”
