In the year 2000 a temple dedicated to the ancient Egyptian goddess Isis and the oriental deity Magna Mater was discovered in Mainz. The temple is thought to have been in use until around 300-400 AD.
Alongside more than 300 oil lamps, particular excitement was created by the discovery of sacrificial offerings such as dates, figs, pine nuts and grain, which were burned on altars. Animal sacrifices were also carried out, as evidenced by the many chicken bones.
