A petra genetrix (Latin for "fecund rock") is a depiction of the "born from a rock" (r(upe) n(ato)) scene in the cosmological myth of the Roman Mithraic Mysteries. While most rock-birth depictions show the figure emerging from the rock, there are also a few petra genetrix depictions of a (yet-"unborn") figure "inside" a rock.
