Mithra

Osiris or the sun was now worshipped throughout the whole world, though under different names. He wag the Mithra of the Persians, the Brahma of India, the Baal or Adonis of the Phoenicians, the Apollo of the Greeks, the Odin Of Scandinavia, the Hu of the Britons, and the Baiwe of the Laplanders.” –  THE THE VEIL OF ISIS; OR, MYSTERIES OF THE DRUIDS BY W. WINWOOD READE. 1861

“These Mysteries are supposed to
have been carried from Egypt by Zeradusht or Zoroaster, and instituted as an initiation into the principles of the religion which he had founded among the ancient Persians. Of the identity of Mithras with other deities there have been various opinions, but to the Persians, who first practiced his Mysteries, he was a sun god, and worshiped as the god of light. The Mysteries of Mithras were always celebrated in caves. They were divided into seven stages or degrees and consisted of the most rigorous proofs of fortitude and courage.”– The origin of Freemasonry and Knights templar by Bennett, John Richardson, (1907) pg. 16
