Distance slab of the 20th Legion, Eastermains, Kirkintilloch
A sandstone distance slab found in 1789 at Eastermains Farm, Kirkintilloch. The boar depicted is the emblem of the 20th Legion, and it appears to be running out of a cave towards a tree. The stone records that the Legion completed '3000 paces and 3304 feet'. The stone is 59 cm long by 44 cm high and 35 cm thick. The back is wedge-shaped, suggesting that it was originally built into a masonry structure.
