Mithras slaying the bull, British Museum

2nd century Roman marble statue.

 

The poor bull is also being attacked by a dog, who appears to be licking the sword wound, a snake, and a scorpion who is going for the testicles (see www.flickr.com/photos/orangeaurochs/6267074597/in/photost... for close-up).
