London

Tombstone of Iulius Classicianus (the procurator imposed on Britannia after the Boudican revolt was brought about by his predecessor), found in pieces, built into a tower of the Roman walls of London near Tower Hill, and now in the British Museum. This is RIB 12 which reads Dis [M]anibus [G(ai) Iul(i) G(ai) f(ili) F]ab(ia tribu) Alpini Classiciani ... proc(uratoris) provinc(iae) Brita[nniae] Iulia Indi filia Pacata I[ndiana] uxor [f(ecit)] or 'To the immortal shades, Gaius Iulius Classicianus, son of Gaius, of the Fabian voting-tribe ... procurator of the province of Britannia, his wife Iulia Pacata Indiana, daughter of Indus, set this up'. Indus was probably the eponymous founder of the ala Gallorum Indiana (which was based at Cirencester).
