Legion VI dedication stone, Lanercost Priory
Legion VI dedication stone, Lanercost Priory
This is set in the wall of the buildings next to the priory itself and must have come from Hadrian's Wall just to the north. You may have to stand on your head to read it though (this photo has been inverted 180 degrees). It says:
'LEG VI V PIA FID' which translates as 'Legion Six Victrix made this'.
