There have probably been three mithräen discovered at Friedberg. These were found in 1849,1881, 1894. The most prominent of these three was found at the Grosse Klostergasse near the old train station. A tauroctony was found depicting Mithras slaying the bull. His attendants Cautes and Cautopates were to his left and right. Cautes was holding a torch pointed upward, and Cautopates had a torch pointing downward. Two alters were found beneath the relief. One was dedicated to Soli Invicto Imp, the Sun God the Invincible Emperor.
