HUNNUM in Britain, the fifth station along the line of the Vallum, beginning at Segedunum (Wallsend), where the Notitia places the Ala Sabiniana--a body of troops probably named after Hadrian's empress, Sabina. It coincides with the present locality of Halton, where Roman Remains are abundant, and where, in A.D. 1600, Camden found a monumental slab erected to the memory of a soldier of the Ala Sabiniana. For a notice of the excavation made at Hunnum and its results, as well as for that of Roman road, and a bridge made out an older Roman one, see Bruce's Roman Wall, pp. 126--141. them. The Hun-jo are pressed by the Chinese, 141.
