Small Mithraeum excavated on the r. side of the road which leaves the porta Decumana of the Roman Camp at Szony (distr. Komarom) and leads to Tata. The sanctuary is situated in the immediate neighbourhood of a Dolichenum.

The Mithraeum (L. 8.50 Br. 3.70) has the form of a grotto and the entrance is on the west side. A small vestibulum precedes a larger room. Several fragments of statues were found but got lost when the site was bombed. The description is entirely based on Radnoti's account.

Radnoti in AErt. (S. III) VII-IX, 1946-1948, 137ff.
