The Sidon Mithraeum was a Mithraeum in Sidon, Lebanon, discovered in the late 19th century by Edmond Durighello and now lost.

It is thought to be located under the car park of the St. Nicholas Greek church in Sidon, but has not been excavated in modern times.[1]


A dozen statues from the Mithraeum were donated by Edmond Durighello to the Louvre, where they remain on display today. They have been catalogued in the Corpus Inscriptionum et Monumentorum Religionis Mithriacae as numbers 74–87.
