Dedicated a sculpture of Mithras killing the bull in the 4th mithraeum of Aquincum together with Marcus.
Biography of Symphorus
- Symphorus was a brother of the Mithraeum of Aquincum IV.
- Active circa 2nd century in Aquincum, Pannonia inferior (Pannonia).
Although the legal status of Symphorus is uncertain, it can be pointed out that he bears a Greco-Oriental sounding name, which is well attested among slaves and freedmen in Rome. It is therefore likely that he should be attached to one of these social categories.
