The Postumus Milestone was set up in 261 AD in the reign of the Emperor Postumus. It is an unshaped pillar with badly cut, highly abbreviated inscription. At a later date, probably in the 5TH Century, this stone was turned upside down and reused as a gravestone for a local saint or chief, DINOCONSUODICUS. The name is of pre-Roman Celtic origin. It stood at Madryn on the Roman Road between Canovium (Caerhun) and Segontium (Caernarfon). The stone is on display in the Gwynedd Museum, Bangor, North Wales.|Streetview is nearest available to the original site.| Translation of later Inscription: DINOCONSUODICUS | Frances Lynch.
