From here: labelled "a view of the outer chamber of the temple" here. By Ken Pennington.

See CIMRM 338 for a plan showing this chamber in which the cippus stands.

In May 2013, this item was not in that chamber, labelled "the Mithraic school" , but had been moved into the Mithraeum, where an amphora was being leaned against it.1
