Go down to Temple of Mithras into the basement of the ancient basilica and knelt before the deity consent and sunlight :)
The small basilica near the Colosseum has Mithraeum - Temple of Mithras. It was found by accident and it was a real discovery among historians and lovers of antiquities.
Now Mithraeum allowed everyone to look at the ancient Iranian god who inspired awe and reverence in the old days, but quickly forgotten among Italians.
Mithraeum is a small room with a domed ceiling, there is the altar with the image of Mithras in the center.
