MONUMENT NO. 10625

DESCRIPTION + /

A Roman inscribed tombstone, 3'2" by 3'1", was found at Stanwix according to Horsley, but is now at Drawdikes. The head carved above the inscription is supposed to represent the deceased. Its peculiar aspect, and the lions at the upper angles of the stone, slightly countenance the thought that the deceased may have been one of the detachment of Moors, garrisoned at Aballava. Tombstone, seen in 1599 by Bainbrigg at Stanwix. Now built into the S face of Drawdikes Castle (NY 45 NW 8) SW of Milecastle 64.
