Abstract: In 1997, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem acquired a new Mithraic relief. It is well preserved and carries a Greek inscription ; its iconography offers some new scenes and some further examples of scenes that are only known from one or a few other Mithraic works of art. This relief and its inscription are the subject of the present publication. It is in three parts ; first, after a brief introduction, the relief will be described and its iconographical repertoire will be discussed in connection with the corpus of Mithraic art ; then, the inscription will be discussed, in particular the name it mentions ; and finally, some tentative remarks will be made with regard to its possible date and place of origin.
