A Mithraeum discovered near the southern town-wall between a rectangular building and a building with an apse.

The entrance of the Mithraeum (L. 17.00 Br. 9.00) is on the east side. Before the sanctuary proper are two smaller rooms, the pronaos and the apparatorium. The temple is divided into a central aisle and two benches, extending to the back wall. Before this wall an elevation (Br. 2.00 D. 0.40) with a niche. At the southern side of the apparatorium is another room (L. 7.90 Br. 5.90). Some fragments of line painting were found but no sculptures.
