In the area of the Ostvicus in Künzing, a contiguous area of about 4.3 ha has been completely excavated. The area between the outer fort ditch and the beginning of the civilian settlement, which is free of finds, probably represents a kind of market place.

It was not until 1998 that a confirmed ground plan of a sanctuary was established.

The mithraeum is located 190 metres east of the outer defence ditch of the cohort fort, directly adjacent to the civilian settlement; 30 metres away from the sanctuary is a cremation cemetery.
