This inscription was found in 1639 in Vaison-la-Romaine, in Gallia Narbonensis, in a garden near an old cemetery, engraved on an altar that has now disappeared. No mithreum has been found in the ancient city, but a fragment of a statue of Mithras tauroctone unearthed in 1933 indicates that the cult was certainly practiced at one time in Vasio.
