AXELODU´NUM the 16th station, per lineam, valli of the Notitia, under the charge of the Cohors prima Hispanorum. This cohort is mentioned in an inscription found at Ellenborough in Cumberland. Place for place, Burgh on the Sands is Axellodunum. Name for name, Hexham suits better; as the--el may have been a diminutive form (as in Mosella) and the--dunum is an element of composition. Horsley prefers Burgh (Book 1.100.7). The evidence, also, of there having been a station of Burgh is complete (100.9).
