The New Mithraeum
3 Sep 2023
This monument may be compared to a small marble base, seen by Smetius in Rome in the 16th century in domo Iordani Ruchabellae ad S. Laurentium in Damaso ad Campum Florae (MMM II 414 No. 293). The base, on which a representation of Minerva and a lying water-god, probably supported a statue of Jupiter. The inscription on the front is worth mentioning:
CIL VI 404; MMM II No. 554.
Iovi optimo maximo / caelestino fontibus et / Minervae et collegio / sanctissimo quod consis/tit in praedis Larci / Macedonis. / In curia.
