Mithras at Caesarea Maritima

A warehouse converted to a Mithraeum (a sanctuary to the Persian god Mithras) was excavated by Robert J. Bull in 1973 at Caesarea Maritima on the Mediterranean coast of Israel. From one of the few excavated Mithraea in the East we can get a glimpse of this mystery religion and its importance in the Roman imperial period.
