On the left you can see a patched wall. This is where the Mithraeum was discovered. Men digging a well in search of water instead found
this ancient chamber. (2.5m x 5m)
The black and white picture in the lower left may be a depiction of ceremonies
performed in the temple.
The picture below shows Mithras slaying the bull. As the story goes...
Mithras and the bull were alone on a barren world. Mithras killed
the bull to release the life which was within it. As the bull's blood
spilled upon the earth all of the forms of life we know today sprung forth
into existence. (Nucci)
If you find yourself in Capua, and you would like to visit the Mithraeum
you must ask the ticket seller at the amphitheater to take you there.
