Attested: AI iter 9 Sitomago; TP Sinomago
Where: The Roman fort at Ixworth, Suffolk, TL93136975, which fits AI’s mileage figures perfectly, and was probably constructed to enforce Roman control after Boudicca’s rebellion.
Name origin: ‘Seat of power’, with first element from Latin situs, past participle of sino ‘to set down’. For the second element –magus see under Caesaromagus.
Notes: Steerwood (2003) discussed other places that could fit the mileage figures for Sitomagus but lie nearer the coast, particularly East Green, at TM397660.
