Lugudunum

Attested:  F LVGVDV, FEC LVGD  etc on pottery

Where:  Probably a kiln at Little Munden Farm, Bricket Wood TL13850141, near St Albans.

Name origin:  The location of this kiln is inappropriate for the normal meanings of lugu and dunum.  So it is likely that *Lug(u)dunum was a sort of a trade mark, because OASTRIVS and/or other potters active in that area may have immigrated from the bigger Lugudunum (Lyon in France).
