Sextae

Attested:  ND sextae.

Where:  York, around SE6051.

Name Origin:  Latin for ‘sixth’ (feminine genitive or dative) short for ‘base of the sixth legion’.

Notes:  This analysis rejects the possibility considered by R&S that two lines in ND both referred to the same place: Prefectus legionis sextae and Prefectus equitum Dalmatiorum, Praesidio.
