The Corbridge Lanx
Corbridge, Northumberland

The Corbridge Lanx This beautiful rectangular silver dish, measuring 19" by 15", was found, during the 1730s, in the River Tyne adjoining the Roman Supply Station of Corstopitum (Corbridge), not far from Hadrian's Wall. A number of associated items have since been melted down or lost. Its figured decoration shows a scene comprising the deities associated with the Aegean Island of Delos and was probably made to commemorate the Emperor Julian's visit to Apollo's Shrine there in AD 363. It may have been intended for either domestic or religious use.
