Cohors Secundae Pannoniorum

This was a five-hundred strong infantry unit from the province of Pannonia, the region of the modern Czech Republic. They are mentioned on the only inscribed stone recovered from the Beckfoot fort in Cumbria, where they possibly formed the late-Hadrianic garrison. Another undated stone mentioning the unit was found on Hadrian’s Wall between the forts at Housesteads and Great Chesters.
