This is also known as the Ilam pan, a souvenir of Hadrian's Wall. This colorful bronze pan lacks its handle and base. The flamboyant Celtic style ornement is inlaid with turquoise, blue and red enamel. The inscription below the rim lists four forts at the western end of Hadrian's Wall: MAIS (Bowness-on-Solway), COGGABATA (Drumburgh), VXELODVNVM (Stanwix), CAMMOGLANNA (Castlesteads). The rest of the inscription- RIGORE VALI AELI DRACONIS - appears to refer to Hadrian's Wall and to a man named Draco. He may have been a soldier who had the pan made as a souvenir of his military service on the Wall. From Ilam, Stadffordshire, UK. 2nd century CE. (The British Museum, London)
