Inscription of Julius Valens who lived for 100 years

In Caerleon (southeast Wales) in about 1815 an amazing Roman inscription was discovered. It mentions a man named Julius Valens – a Roman legionary who lived 100 years.

The object is dated to the 1st-4th century CE. The inscription on the tombstone states: “To the spirits of the departed; Julius Valens, veteran of the Second Legion Augusta, lived 100 years; Julia Secundina, his wife, and Julius Martinus, his son, had this set up”.
