Lot 0208
CA. 200 AD. Very rare Ancient Roman Bronze statuette of God Mithras on its original stand. The Roman deity Mithras appears in the historical record in the late 1st century A.D., and disappears from it in the late 4th century A.D. Unlike the major mythological figures of Graeco-Roman religion, such as Jupiter and Hercules, no ancient source preserves the mythology of the god. All of our information is therefore derived from depictions on monuments, and the limited mentions of the cult in literary sources. Very fine details; great patina and details. Provenance: From a private Estate collection in Cambridge; previously in a London collection, acquired in the 1970s.
