CIMRM 2033 - Small finds from Sarmizegetusa, Dacia.

A number of small finds were discovered at the excavation of the Mithraeum at Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa in 1886 by Kiraly Pal. This remained, until 2013, the only excavation of a Mithraeum in Transylvania. But the publication was in a monograph in Hungarian, which focused more on the cult than the archaeology. The small finds were published sporadically in this and subsequent papers.

A new paper on these by Csaba Szabó is now accessible online.1 This gives a handlist of the finds, a map of the locations where they were found, and better quality images.
