Mithra Also called Serapis as they are female and male deities as one:
Sarapis (Mithra) a syncretistic deity derived from the worship of the Egyptian Osiris and Apis (Osiris + Apis = Oserapis/Sarapis) and also gained attributes from other deities, such as chthonic powers linked to the Greek Hades and Demeter, and benevolence linked to Dionysus and NIMROD. This worship extended to Iran, India, Rome, Germany and many other countries!
Mithra had her/his own commandments, doctrines and virgin birth, baptism, resurrection with a mark of a pagan cross. The cross symbol was put on his/her followers foreheads and right hands!
(See the crosses on the old pic)
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads
