Risingham

  • Description

    Dedication slab found at Risingham in 1599. This is RIB 1227, which reads Numinib(us) / Augustor(um) / coh(ors) IIII Gal(lorum) / eq(uitata) / fec(it) or 'For the deities of the Emperors, the Fourth Cohort of Gauls, part-mounted, set this up'. The peltae on either side of the main inscribed panel show this to be post-Hadrianic, probably Antonine. The cohors IV Gallorum were at Risingham from the time of Marcus Aurelius until the 3rd century, when they moved to Vindolanda. Scanned from the 1867 3rd edition of The Roman Wall. Handbook p.100
