Inscription fixed into a wall beside a cave, hewn out in the rock. This cave lies about 40 meters South of the gate of Tiddis-Kheneg along the paved main-road.

L.H. 0.05-0.03.

I(nvicto) M(ithrae) cultore/s de suo a s/olo / (a)edifi[c]arun(t).

Berthier believes, that the Mithraeum has been in the cave. The vault is almost dome-shaped and in front of the cave there is room enough for a possible adjacent temple.

Also a phallos was found here, represented on a piece of rock in the form of parallelepiped (H. 0.49).
