Mithraic monuments of Mogontiacum
The Mithraic vase from Ballplatz in Mainz shows seven figures performing different sequences of an initiation ritual.
The Mithraeum of Mainz, was discovered outside the Roman legionary fortress. Unfortunately the site was destroyed without being recorded.
This altar has been unusually dedicated to both gods Mithras and Mars at Mogontiacum, present-day Mainz.
