On one side of the relief, we found the scene of the sacred meal between Mithras and Sol. The most important episode besides the killing of the bull […] is the joint meal of Mithras and Helios/Sol, who lie together on the skin of the bull and, as was customary in antiquity, eat the brewed innards and drink wine with it.
