Mithraeum

A roofed passage near Ballplatz features two altars that form part of a Mithraeum, a temple erected in classical Antiquity by the worshippers of Mithras. The cult of the Persian god of light was brought by soldiers to Mogontiacum during the 2nd century CE.

We now know that the site around these consecration altars was the largest Mithraeum in the city.
