The Barberini Mithraeum, inside a building of the II century A.D., was casually discovered in 1936 during some construction works. It is made of a rectangular barrel vaulted room and typical lateral platforms on which the worshippers used to lay. Under the starry vault you can admire a wonderful painting of the god killing a bull with two torch carriers (Cautes and Cautopates) standing at the sides of it.
