Pictured left is a marble statue group of the God Mithras slaying a bull.
Mithras was originally a Persian God and is shown here wearing Persian clothing. The cult of Mithras was one of many religions adopted by the Romans as they expanded their empire - which included much of Britain from AD 43 to AD 410.
