[…] a modest monument from Germania Inferior found some fifteen years ago, but hitherto almost completely neglected in general discussion of the mysteries. What survives is the base for a bronze statue (aes) in the form of a votive altar, in the red sandstone of the North Eifel, a stray find ploughed up in 1983 near the site of the auxiliary castellum at Burginatium (Alt- Kalkar) near Kalkar in the Landkreis Kleve, Nordrhein-Westfalen, in the Rhine valley just by the Dutch border. It thus enjoys the distinction of being the most northerly in situ Mithraic find on the Continent.
