Mithras was the Persian God of Light and Wisdom. He is presented as the Lord of the world, the spirit of Goodness, who protected the world against the spirit of evil. Mithras’ worship is mystical.
His shrine in Aigio (19, Sotiriou Lontou Str.) was discovered completely by chance during the excavations for the erection of a building. In 2011, an underground cavernous chamber was discovered into the conglomerate stone of the area, with dimensions 4X4.5 and height 2.68m. The shrine is dated between the 2nd and 3rd century AD.
On the ground floor there is a chiseled recess with a relief of Mithras, as well as a chamber of unknown use.
