Statue head of God Mithras. This statue head was found buried in the Mithraeum floor at Bucklersbury House, Walbrook in 1954. Mithras was worshiped by soldiers and merchants, and was a god from the eastern part of the empire. He was probably brought to London by soldiers working in the town. The head was probably part of a lifesize bull-slaying scene that would have stood at the apsidal end of the temple.
