Between pieces made of stone that in National Museum of Banat collection are preserved it is a Mithraic plate there, a fragment which has been cataloged in the literature with the wrong discovery place. This article aims to resume all discussions on this piece and to reconsider in a clearer context. So, after the notes from inventory-book, this piece comes through with certainty from the archaeological site Tibiscum (Jupa, Caransebeş, RO) and was a donation of a peasant named Ion Bogdea (villager from Jupa), offered to Marius Moga, the archaeologist who reopened at the Roman camp Jupa systematic archaeological research in 1964. After the analogies to this piece of Mithraic relief type we can say that it dates back somewhere in the late 2nd, beginning of 3rd century and was made in Colonia Sarmizegetusa, in the artistic stone workshop.
