More information : [NY 27304480] A pice of red sandstone measuring 9" x 6"
and inscribed COH VIIII was found at Westward Vicarage in 1901.
Haverfield says "it is one of the usual building records set up by
the 9th Cohort of some legion" (1) but JRS says "this little
sandstone slab inscribed COH VIIII appears to be a forgery (2) Also
found at the same place was the moulded base of a pilaster 6" high.
