I'd have liked to see the face of the carabinieri when they discovered the sculpture.

Carabinieri recover a Mithras Tauroctony about to be sold on the black market

The Mithriac votive sculpture comes from a clandestine excavation in the Tarquinia area. The criminal chain is active in archaeological areas of Rome and southern Etruria.

This is a great Mithraeum and a obliged visit if you go to Roma. It is located below San Clemente Church in the center of the city. You are transported back two millennia walking down a few steps. Worth it!

In Monumentum

Mitreo di San Clemente

The Mithraeum under the Basilica of San Clemente made part of a notable Roman house.
