Attested: RC Levioxava
Where: Possibly the Roman fortlet at Midgate (sometimes called Thorny Hill) at the north-east end of the Gask Line of watch towers and Roman road, at NO02052045.
Name origin: Probably a compound of Latin laevus ‘on the left’ and octava ‘eighth’, possibly referring to Legio VIII Augusta, which served in Britain.
Notes: A comprehensive re-analysis of all names and sites in this area is still needed!
