Attested: RC Cibra
Where: A fort near the west end of the Antonine Wall, most likely at Old Kilpatrick, NS46007315, north of the Clyde, on the outskirts of Glasgow.
Name origin: The nearest parallel to Cibra is Latin cibaria ‘food, rations’. That suggests a supplies base, which would require a river-side location – hence the choice of Old Kilpatrick rather than other western forts at Duntochter, Bearsden, etc.
