Le mur mitoyen entre le vestibule et la pièce principale du Mithraeum de Haouarte a conservé une partie de ses peintures de part et d'autre du chambranle de la porte. Il y avait symétrie, apparente malgré la pauvre conservation du personnage de droite. Celui de gauche, en revanche, est préservé jusqu'à la taille et la partie inférieure du tableau est pratiquement complète. On y voit un cavalier vêtu d'un riche costume iranien à galons brodés, debout au-devant de sa monture. Devant le cheval est posé un autel métallique portatif, autour duquel s'enroule un serpent.
