Comentum novum

I recently had the opportunity to visit the remains of this mithraeum. It is located in Altafulla, in a pleasant seaside village on the Catalan coast. In situ, not much is preserved apart from the foundations, but it's worth a detour if you're passing through the area to visit the site and, if the weather is good, take a dip in the beach!

Mitreo dels Munts

The Mithraeum of Els Munts, near Tarragona, is one of the biggest known, together with the Mitreo delle terme di Caracalla.

Dancing out the Mysteries of Dionysos

Peter Mark Adams: ‘The initiation was a frightening experience that caused some people to panic as a flood of otherworldly entities swept through the ritual space.’

Carabinieri recover a Mithras Tauroctony about to be sold on the black market

The Mithriac votive sculpture comes from a clandestine excavation in the Tarquinia area. The criminal chain is active in archaeological areas of Rome and southern Etruria.

 
I'd have liked to see the face of the carabinieri when they discovered the sculpture.
 
Love the picture of both guys besides the statue. Aren't they called Cautes and Cautopates by a chance?
