Leviodanum

Attested:  RC Leviodanum

Where:  Probably Bertha Roman fort at NO097268, where the river Almond flows into the Tay next to Perth, across the Tay from Scone (Ταμεια).

Name origin:  Probably a compound of Latin laevus ‘on the left’ and *dunum ‘fort’.

Notes:  This identification depends upon matching up RC’s list of forts with the sequence of known forts from north-east to south-west.  Even a small issue of language or archaeology might cause a ripple of displacements in name-to-fort assignments.
