ROMAN SCULPTURE FOUND IN THE WALBROOK

ROMAN SCULPTURE FOUND IN THE WALBROOK

Found in the bed of the Walbrook, which, in Roman days, flowed across the city from near Moor-gate to the Thames, this tablet was made by a Roman soldier of the Second Legion stationed at Caerleon in memory of his discharge. The sculpture shows Mithras, the Persian sun god, slaying the bull. In the upper corners, beyond the circle, are the chariots of the sun and moon.
