LEGEOLIUM a town in Britain, mentioned in the Itinerary. At Castleford, in Yorkshire, the road from Isurium (Aldborough) crosses the river Aire; and in this neighbourhood coins and other antiquities have been dug up. A camp, however, has yet to be discovered. Castleford is generally identified with Legeolium.

Lagecium is the first station from York on the way to London, 21 miles from the former town, and 16 from Danum (== Doncaster). This is from the 8th Itinerary.

In the 5th Legeolium is exactly in the same position. This identifies the two.
