Guidance for uploaders:
- If the image you are tagging does not obviously fall into one of the following three categories (these are very easy to identify),...
- then it is probably a picture of one of the torchbearers (Cautes or Cautopates) or of the snake-entwined lion-headed figure (Leontocephaline), or one of the numerous other Greco-Roman figures that were worshiped alongside Mithras in the Mithraic temples (mithraea).
NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH Category:Mithra, which pertains to an Iranian divinity.
