High in the hills near mount Nemrut sits the ancient Commagene capital of Arsameia. The remains of the relief shows Antiochos or Mithridates shaking hands with the sun god Mithras. Antiochus and those associated with him depicted themselves as being on the same level as the gods through these representations.
