Attested: epocuria is handwritten on a wooden tablet WT39 found at Bloomberg excavation in London. The epo- part is uncertain.
Where: An unknown castellum ‘fort’ somewhere in Iceni territory. No Roman fort has been reported near Venta Icenorum (Caistor, near Norwich), but one has been suggested at Saham Toney, TF89500094, north of Thetford.
Name origin: Epo- might refer to horses or to words/poems. See under Coria about Latin curia ‘court, tribal assembly’.
Notes: Until recently Epping had a “customary court” of the type called libera curia further north, but that does not begin to approach Epocuria in date or location.
