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.
