"On the south bench, fallen from the back wall (fig. 12, 12), was found a
fragmentary scene of Mithras with the Sun, painted in a large scale" (fig. 23).
"Mithras, on the right side reclining to the left, has wide eyes, curly hair, a
Phrygian cap. He wears a Persian dress, a long sleeved tunic with embroidered
"manchettes", a leather(?) collar divided in squares, each square being adorned
with a precious stone, an embroidered front stripe going down the tunic, and a
leather belt divided like the collar in squares, with a precious stone set into the
centre of each. From the shoulders hangs a cloak, fastened over the breast with a
circular brooch. The right arm and hand of Mithras are behind the waist of Sol
as if he were embracing him in a friendly gesture. In his left hand he holds a
Sol is dressed in exactly the same manner as Mithras. His head is bare, encircled
by a nimbus and turned right and up. His wide open eyes are gazing up in the
direction of heaven" (Report, 103 and Pl. XIII, 3).
