A 2nd century bronze pan, elaborately decorated with Celtic-style motifs and colored enamel, and engraved with the names of four forts at the western end of Hadrian's Wall, was found in the Staffordshire moorlands. The pan also has an inscription of a man's name, Aelius Draco, who was "perhaps a veteran of a garrison of Hadrian's Wall," according to Sally Worrell, Roman expert for the Portable Antiquities Scheme. "This is an absolutely wonderful find."
