This monument was found broken into several joined fragments, inserted into the foundations of a wall in the ancient city of Carsulae. It mentions that ten lions financed the construction of a leonteum, which is assumed to be a cult space reserved for initiates of their rank, rather than a denomination of the mithreum itself. This is the only attestation of a building that would be specific to a group of initiates in the cults of Mithra (cf. however the mention of a leonteum in Hermoupolis, Egypt, a place of unconfirmed Mithraic character).
