Latin inscription no. 847 inside on a tabella ansata from the Mithraeum of Dura Europos. The inscription measures 65 cm in length and 33 cm in height. It was discovered as fragments in the fill of the Mithraeum. The name and title of Geta was carelessly erased, but can still be recognized. Rostotzeff (1939:85) suggests that the name of Geta was erased after he was murdered by Caracalla in AD 212. The inscription names detachments of two legions, vexillationes of the IV Scythian and of the XVI Flavia Firma as responsible construction of the inscription (and the Mithraeum?).
