A number of small finds were made at the Inveresk Mithraeum.

There were a number of small finds in the deposits associated with the altars. The finds have been cleaned to facilitate study.

There are several enigmatic pieces of lead which experts believe may once have been attached to the altars.

Several iron objects were also recovered. The objects below appear to be fragments of nails. They have been X-Rayed and cleaned by air abrasion, which removes the corrosion layers revealing the original surface underneath.
