Attested: RC Litinomago (or Liutinomago)
Where: Probably the large Roman marching camp at NJ655381, at Glenmailen near Ythanwells, at the edge of the lowlands of Aberdeenshire.
Name Origin: A compound of λιθινος ‘made of stone’ and *magus ‘power place, administrative centre’, from PIE *magh- ‘to have power’ element, in the sense of projecting power at the nearby highlands.
Notes: This interpretation probably outranks anything based on praying (litany), or Celtic *litano- ‘broad’, or megalithic monuments.
