This terra sigillata crater of the Dragendorff 54 type, restored from numerous fragments, is a product of the workshops at Westendorf St. Peter, in Bavaria. It was among the objects at a sanctuary of Mithras discovered in 1977-1978 near Pfaffenhoffen am Inn. This Mithraeum, established around 100 C.E, was part of a customs station set up between the provinces of Rhaetia and Noricum, along the road that crossed the Inn River and led from Salzburg (luvanum) to Augsburg (Augusta Vindelicum).
