Full image caption

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.
