In Les Bolards, Nuits-Saint-Georges (Cote d'Or) the remnants of a Mithras sanctuary (C) were discovered in 1932-1939.

The exact measures of the Mithraeum are unknown. Via three steps one descended in the vestibulum; the sanctuary itself must have been underground. The entrance lies at the East-side; the apse in the West-side. 'Le périmètre réel du temple, l'importance du vestibule, la longueur de la nef centrale et des larges banquettes qui devaient la flanquer, l'agencement de l'abside restent autant d'inconnues fort regrettables'.

Thevenot in Annales de Bourgogne, XXI, 1949, 249f;
