Translation: With notes 1940, fol. 29e: Also with the mysteries of Mithras the candidates were branded, according to Tertullianus those, who had reached the degree of soldier. This degree followed on the three preparing degrees, those of raven, lion and hidden one, and was actually the first full initiation. The sign the soldiers got on the forehead, where it was burned in with a burning iron. Also with other mystery-rites something similar occurred and so with the mysteries of Kybele the candidates were branded with a certain sign by burning needles, &c. (Farwerck); see F. Cumont, Textes et monuments figures relatifs aux mysteres de Mithra, Bruxelles, 1899. Part I, p. 319. E.
