Mithraeum - Ostia Antica by tonyt Mithraeum - Ostia Antica by tonyt
Ok I'll spare you other snapshots of my trip to Rome but this is one of the most fascinating things I have seen.

Some friends and me were running and climbing around these ruins which were still being explored by archaeologists.
We ran through underground catacombs, almost fell into some wells, climbed on top of some ruin walls and at one point stumbled upon this underground temple with this statue.

This is a mitraeum, a ritual place of mithraic mystery where people probably sacrificed bulls or sth. (our teacher told us some more but i forget easily).
