Mithraic temples (Latin: mithraea, singular mithraeum) were places of worship for the 1st-4th century Roman Mithraic Mysteries. Mithraic temples are easy to identify: They were supposed to symbolize caves (spelea), and accordingly built to look like caves (occasionally, natural caves were used as well, and in a few cases they were also just basements under houses). Mithraic temples are clearly distinguishable from the typical Greco-Roman temples since they never looked like them. Mithraic temples are typically small, usually holding at most ten-fifteen people.
