Fragments of the main votive relief found at the Mariana site, Lucciana, Corse, depicting the sacred Tauroctony.

À l’extrémité du couloir devait se dresser le bas-relief de marbre représentant Mithra, coiffé de son bonnet phrygien et sacrifiant un taureau. Trois fragments de ce bas-relief brisé ont été retrouvés à ce jour par les archéologues. Y figurent un chien et un serpent buvant le sang s’écoulant de la gorge entaillée de l’animal immolé, alors qu’un scorpion lui pince les testicules.
