In the vestibule of the Riegel Mithraeum, an interesting collection of cultic ceramics was found, as well as a sword whose particular shape suggests that it was used during ceremonies: the blade was curved in a semi-circle in the middle of its length; when a man's neck was passed through this curve, the sword could give the impression of piercing the throat.
