Head of a Lion
Ostia Museum, Ostia Antica, Italy.
This sculptural fragment is part of a larger group that includes a torso of Mithras in the typical pose of “Mithras slaying the Bull”.
However, this group, called the Giustiniani Group, is thought to be a medieval restoration of the usual Mithras pose that replaces the bull with a Lion, seen here.
Note the hand of Mithras, clutching the head of lion in much the same way that the typical pose has him holding the bull’s head.
