B2 Trinity Place, 1852, 1882, and 1935

During excavations of the E. side of Trinity Place in 1852, a
semi-circular bastion containing Roman architectural fragments
and portions of tombstones was found. Among the latter was the
first piece found of the tombstone of Classicianus the
Procurator. (See Pl. 4.) A further portion of the bastion was
destroyed in excavations for the Inner Circle Railway, 1882-5,
and more sculptured stones were found. Finally in 1935, when the
Trinity Place sub-station of the London Passeger Transport Board
was being built, the remainder of the bastion, part of the N.
side, standing four courses high, was exposed. In the lowest
course, upside down, was a second portion of the inscription
from the tomb of Classicianus, containing parts of the last three
lines, including the title 'PROC. PROVINC. BRIT.' (See Pl. 5, and
Fig. 4, p. 41.)
