White marble relief (H. 0.76 Br. 1.10 D.0.17), now in the Castle of Fala at the Drave. The relief was found in 1845 on the bank of the Drave, east of the small river Rast, which here runs into the Drave. The following monuments are from the same findspot in Ruse (Maria Rast). Therefore it is highly probable that here a Mithraeum existed.
