Tombstone of Marcus Favonius Facilis

Tombstone of Marcus Favonius Facilis is one of the best preserved sculptural works found in Britain.

From the object we can read that Marcus Favonius Facilis was a centurion and served in the XX legion in Colchester. He died a few years after 43 CE, when the invasion of emperor Claudius to Britain took place.

Facilis was buried in the cemetery on the main road to Londinium.
