This moulded marble plaque was discovered in 1911, along with another that is identical in terms of its contents but has a slightly different layout, in the Mithraeum of the Koenigshoffen quarter of modern Strasbourg, at the site of the vicus canabarum located along the access route to the legionary camp of ancient Argentorate These two plaques, today broken, were originally affixed to one side or the other of the cult relief, which has been found in multiple fragments scattered about the sanctuary.
