This slab recorded the building of the bath-house which was found near Lanchester fort:

Emperor Caesar Marcus Antonius Gordianus Pius Felix Augustus erected from ground level this bath building with basilica through the agency of Egnatius Lucilianus, the pro-praetorian legate under the charge of Marcus Aurelis Quirinus, prefect of the first cohort of Lingonians, styled Gordiana.

The Lingonians, from eastern France, were in Lanchester in the 3rd century AD.
