LAGENTIUM or Lageolium (Castleford) Yorkshire, England.

The Antonine Itinerary places Lageohum between Danum (Doncaster) and Eboracum (York). It is also mentioned in the Ravenna Cosmography, but it seems never to have been more than a roadside settlement.

Coins and the remains of walls have been found at intervals just S of Castleford Church. Graves have also been found, and a milestone, now in the Yorkshire Museum, York, erected by the emperor Annius Florianus ca. 276, comes from the site.
