Found near Aquileia 'in un casale fuori di Aq. oltre la Villa di Monasterio vi sono in una colonna Ie tre seguenti iscrizioni'.

Deo f(orti) i(nvicto) i(nvicto) M(ithrae) / P. Aelius / Mercur(ialis) / Q. Tessig/nius Maxi/mia(nus) patr(es) / pros(esedente) T(ito) Aur(elio) / Victore v(otum) s(olverunt) l(ibentes) m(erito).

The first part of the inscription D.F.I.M has been interpreted in different ways, reading the 'F', as an 'I'. Cumont reads Deo invicto, invicto Mithrae, Vermaseren as well. Clauss see a Deo Inuicto insiuperabili Mithrae.CIL V 805; MMM No. 169.
