The Mithraic cult was an exclusively men-only mystery religion in the Roman Empire. There are references to two places of worship from Dieburg, whereby the Mithraeum, discovered in 1926 with its world-famous Mithras stone and numerous other stone monuments, forms the centerpiece of Museum Schloss Fechenbach.

A Mithraeum found at Dieburg at the corner of the Minnefelderseestrasze (Fr. Eberstrasze) and the Forsthausstrasze in the N-E part of the town in 1926.

The Mithraeum is built of trachyte from Eppertshausen near Dieburg.
