26/4/16 -Aventine and Testaccio

This Mithraeum (sometimes named the Mithraeum of the Circus Maximus due to its proximity to the famous public space) dates from the second/third century AD. Below I have attempted to reconstruct the colours that would have adorned the marble relief dedicated to Mithras, showing him slaying the bull.
