Monument Number 19937

Hob Uid: 19937
Location :
County Durham
Rokeby
Grid Ref : NZ0825014190
Summary : Six or seven Roman altar stones and a milestone present at the front of Rokeby House, several have been arranged to form a garden feature. Additional inscriptions have also been incorporated into the wall. It is thought all the stones were moved from the Roman sites at Greta Bridge and Birdoswald.
More information : (NZ 08231418) 6 or 7 roman altars in front of Rokeby House, and
other altars and inscriptions in niches in the walls probably all
came from the Roman Station at Birdoswald on the Roman Wall. (1)

Six altars, four are inscribed. (2)

Two inscribed altars (Nos 742 and 743) probably from Greta Bridge, but possibly from Birdoswald, where found before 1763. No 2279, an
inscribed cylindrical Roman milestone, 79 ins high by 15 ins, found
near the SW angle of Greta Bridge Roman fort c.1727. (3)

Five Roman altars (four of them inscribed) form part of an ornamental
garden feature. F1's sixth 'altar' forms the pedestal of the sun dialat NZ 08241419, but it is obviously a modern copy.

The Roman milestone stands in a corner by the house at NZ 08251419.
