A Mithraeum situated in a rock (H. 6.00) the so-called Schäfershütte near St. Wendel near Schwarzerden. It has been restored since 1840.

In the description I follow Krencker's acceptable reconstruction: on the rock wall is a relief. Holes on either side of it (not all of which are antique, however) point to a construction before the wall. The middle-upper holes may have served for the consolidation of a gable-roof.

The depth of the sanctuary is unknown. In front of the construction lies a meadow and a little further there is a brook. The sanctuary itself is constructed four meters
