Archaeology Notes

NS67NW 20 c. 61 72.

The following inscribed stones are believed to be associated with the fort at Cadder (NS67SW 16, q.v.):

1. The top of an altar, bearing the first line of an inscription now wholly indecipherable; it was probably found at Cadder (NS 6172) during the construction of the Canal, and is now in the Hunterian Museum, Glasgow.

2. A very small fragment of a commemorative tablet found in 1852 in the garden of the manse at Cadder, and now in the NAtional Museum of Antiquities of Scotland (NMAS). The text, which is incomplete, reads (V)EX(ILLATIO) / (LEG(IONIS)) II / (AUG(USTAE)).

J Macdonald 1897; RCAHMS 1978.
