Hob Uid: 193193
Location :
Somerset
South Somerset
Martock
Grid Ref : ST4777018760
Summary : Site of a Roman milestone inscribed to Valerius Severus (AD 305-6) found in 1930. It is now in Taunton Museum.
More information : [ST 4777 1876] An apparent columner base for a statue,
48 1/2 ins. high x 13 1/2 ins. maximum diameter, inscribed to
Valerius Severus (AD 305-6) was found towards the end of May
1930 during the widening of Venn Bridge on the Fosse Way. It
was embedded in the south bank of the stream about 6ft. below
the surface, and from 3-4ft. from the actual waterway.
Wright, however, considers this stone to be a moulded column,
probably once part of an arcade, re-used as a milestone beside
the Fosse Way.
It is now in Taunton Museum. (1-4)
