Numerous archaeological finds, including meeting places, monuments and artifacts, have contributed to modern knowledge about Mithraism throughout the Roman Empire.

Among the items found are about 1000 inscriptions, 700 examples of the bull-killing scene ( tauroctony ), and about 400 other monuments. [6] It has been estimated that there would have been at least 680 mithraea in Rome.

Interpretation of the physical evidence remains problematic and contested. [8]
