Historic ArtifactsEdit

The Roman town of Nida (Roman town) was situated in the south-western part of Heddernheim.

There have been three Mithraea (temples to Mithras) discovered at Heddernheim.[1] A hoard of silver votive plaques was discovered in the Roman settlement of Nida near Heddernheim in the nineteenth century, some of which are in the British Museum.[2] The offerings appear to have been deposited in a shrine dedicated to the Roman God of Jupiter Dolichenus.

Early historyEdit

Heddernheim was first mentioned in documents in 801 AD as Phetterenheim.
