Head of Mithras recovered in Angers
Ouest France - Claudine Quiblier

 
En mai dernier, les archéologues qui fouillent le site de l’ancienne clinique Saint-Louis, près de la gare, avaient montré les vestiges d’un bas-relief dont il manquait le motif principal : la tête du dieu Mithra. Ils l’ont retrouvée ce mois-ci. Le démontage du temple leur a aussi permis de découvrir… un temple sous le temple ainsi que des objets rarissimes : un bronze intact de Bacchus, quelques très jolies statuettes en marbre et en poterie et des pièces en argent. Le chantier s’est achevé aujourd’hui. Demain, place aux bulldozers. Il n’y a plus de temple à Mithra à Angers.

    Just read why they decided to continue to dig under the mithraeum before complaining: http://www.angers.maville.com/actu/actudet_-Et-le-dieu-Mithra-sortit-du-ventre-de-la-terre..._loc-1531774_actu.Htm

    They found more about the site history in doing so !

    Look at that the satisfaction of that man who's showing that discover during the time the sanctuar of Mithra from Angers (back) is destroted ! It's archéological pillaing !
