Note 136
From Chapter 16 of the Decline & Fall

We might quote, among a great number of instances, the mysterious worship of Mithras and the Taurobolia; the latter of which became fashionable in the time of the Antonilles (see a Dissertation of M. de Boze, in the Memoires de l'Academie des Inscriptions, tom. ii p. 443). The romance of Apuleius is as full of devotion as of satire.
