Mithraeum II was found at Ptuj (Pettau) at a distance of 20 mtrs. south of
Mithraeum I in 1901. The whole building and the complete inventary are in the
Museum iu Ptuj. The Mithraeum itself has been reconstructed in smaller proportions.
Abramic, Führer, 63ff and fig. 15. See fig. 385.
The sanctuary (L. 13.40 Br. 7.30) has the
normal division into a corridor (Br. 4.00) and
two benches (H. 0.70 Br. 1.00) the surface of
which is covered with loam. A stone wall with
threshold seems to divide the whole construction
into a small pronaos (1/3 of the whole) and the
actual sanctuary. The same small stone wall is
also built in the two benches.
Before the west wall there is a construction
(H. 0.80 Br. 2.35 D. 0.90) with a projecting part
upon which the cultrelief rested.
On the r. side of the corridor and partly built
in the r. bench there is a waterbasin (H. 0.65
Br. 0.85-0.92) the inside of which has a revetment
of marble slabs. The water could flow away
through a canal. Against each bench there were
about six trapezophores. One piece still complete
(H. 0.62) is adorned with a paw. Abramic
mentions (p. 70) the trapezophores also were
adorned with lion's heads, but there are no
traces of them.
