Despite the archaeological work carried out on the site following the chance discovery, it has not been possible to establish clearly the reasons for the presence of the Mitra de Cabra on the site. There is no archaeological evidence of a possible mithraeum that could have housed it. [...] Although an intentional search was made, no space that could be interpreted as a mithraeum was found among the archaeological remains of the first phase.
