Mithraic relief, Naples, 3rd century CE, marble. Musée d’Art et d’Histoire (Musée du Cinquantenaire, Brussels, Belgium). Made with ReMake and ReCap pro.
The scene represents Mithra killing the bull. The tail of the animal ends with three ears. A snake and a dog come to lick the blood flowing from the wound, a scorpion pinches the testicles. In the upper right corner is the bust of the Moon. A raven, half preserved, is perched on a rock behind the god.
