From: Nolan, The Basilica of S. Clemente, 1914, p.113: "Near it" (CIMRM 344) "is the marble bust of the Sun-god. Both pieces of sculpture were found in the Temple of Mithras; and to the temple of Mithras, now happily delivered from the waters which for forty years had inundated it, these interesting pieces of sculpture are now about to be restored."
