In Apulum, where more than 50 monuments come from and at least 30 followers are epigraphically attested (over a quarter of all known in Dacia), the mystery cult of Mithras is one of the most popular. The Mithraic community of Apulum is, after that of Sarmizegetusa, the most important in the province. There must have been 5 or 6 mithraea here, although the seven degrees of initiation are not attested among the dedicators. The Mithraic community of Apulum has an active presence, epigraphically and artistically, in the provincial society of the 15th century. II-III p.Chr.
