[A] phallos was found [at the Mithraeum of Tiddis], represented on a piece of rock in the form of parallelepiped (H. 0.49). But this phallos has been represented in such way, that it bears a great resemblance to a cock: 'il est en effet dressé sur pattes munies d'ergots'. Besides, a bull's head has been found above which an infula, hewn out in stone (H. 0.77 Br. 0.51 D. 0.46).
