Roof Tile - LEGIO XXX
A Roman roof tile, or brick, bearing "XXX VV".

This is part of the stamp LEG XXX VV from Legio XXX Ulpia Victrix.

This tile fragment was found by my son in a ploughed farm field at Carnuntum.

Legio XXX VV was never stationed at Carnuntum but was stationed at Brigetio (the next legionary base downstream on the Danube, now Komarom, Hungary) 103 - 118 AD.

Other tiles from Legio XXX VV have been found at Carnuntum, including one in the collection of R.F. Ertl, and thus tiles must have been shipped upriver from Brigetio to the larger base and town at Carnuntum.
