Mithraeum II was found at Ptuj at a distance of 20 m south of the Mithraeum I in 1901. The whole building and the complete inventory are in the Museum in Ptuj. The Mithraeum itself has been reconstructed in smaller proportions.

The sanctuary (L. 13.40 Br. 7.30) has the normal division into a corridor (Br. 4.00) and two benches (H. 0.70 Br. 1.00) the surface of which is covered with loam. A stone wall with threshold seems to divide the whole construction into a small pronaos (1/3 of the whole) and the actual sanctuary.
