Archaeological sites

 

Discovered by accident in 1936, the  Barberini Mithreum (a sanctuary dedicated to the Persian god Mithras) this, together with a similar example at St. Prisca, is a rare example of Roman depictions of the god Mithras. As is typical for this cult, it is  a rectangular room with a barrel vault and benches along the sides,  where a communal meal was shared. The room is inside a building which dates back to the second century AD although the room itself was used for religious purposes in the third century. Of great interest in this particular case, are the representations of the God slaying a bull, the various astrological symbols and ten small paintings, telling the story, almost in cartoon fashion, of Mithras himself.
