    Silver arm and plaque from a small statue of Victory

    Roman Britain, 2nd-4th century AD
    Tunshill, Butterworth, Lancashire

    The plaque was originally attached to the wrist. The inscription translates: 'To Victory to the Victorious Sixth Legion. Valerius Rufus, performs his vow willingly to a worthy cause'. The statue probably came from the shrine of the Roman army's 6th legion Victrix, which was based at York from the early second to the late fourth century AD.
