Women on the Antonine Wall


A lot of women lived on the Antonine Wall. Find out more about Vibia Pacata, the wife if the commanding officer at Westerwood Fort. Why not try and write her story?


Vibia Pacata is one of the few women who left a trace on the Antonine Wall. She dedicated this altar stone to Silvanus and to the goddess of the Crossroads. Vibia was the wife of Flavius Verecundus, the commanding officer at Westerwood fort. They are the only married couple on the Wall we definitively know of and legal and army documents allow us to follow her travels through the Roman Empire
