Au moins dès le IIIe siècle, un bâtiment rectangulaire excavé est installé au nord-ouest du site. Son architecture est celle d'un mithraeum.

À Angers, des tambours de colonnes, peut-être bases d'autel ou socles de statue, émergent.

La fouille des décombres antiques de la rue René-Brémond révèle aujourd'hui des éléments de ces statues peintes : fragments d'un bas-relief du dieu Mithra avec notamment des éléments des dadophores (porteurs de torches) et du miles (porteur de lance), associés à un riche mobilier du IVe siècle.
