Mithraeum (Reg. I, Is. X, 4) built in a private temple of a collegium, which is situated on the corner of Via del Pomerio and Via del Tempio Rotondo ('Mitreo di Fructosus').

The Mithraeum has been constructed in the favissae of a temple. The vaulted speleum had two side-benches, of which only the right one has been preserved (traces of red stucco). In the backwall a semi-circular niche (H. 1.20 Br. 1.25 D. 0.40) was hewn out roughly, this was painted blue.

Two bases, one of dark greyish marble (H. 0.56 Br. 0.27-0.22), the other of travertine (H. 0.55 Br. 0.28-0.
