Distance slab of the 20th Legion, Cochno Estate, Duntocher
A sandstone distance slab found sometime before 1695. The original findspot is unknown but it was donated by the owner of the Cochno Estate near Duntocher. It is believed to belong to one of the two sectors west of Castlehill which were completed by the 20th Legion. It is 75cm long by 56 cm high by 12 cm thick, and bears the emblem of the 20th Legion, a boar. The inscription reads: "For the Emperor Caesar Titus Aelius Hadrianus Antoninus Augustus Pius, father of his Country, a detachment of the Twentieth Valerian and Victorius Legion, completed ..... feet (of the Wall)". Unfortunately, the distance has not been added, so the inscription is incomplete.
