The Roman Map of Britain remainder of the Antonine Wall next
Iterum sunt civitates in ipsa Britania recto tramite un alteri conexa ubi et ipsa Britania plus angustissima de oceano in oceano esse dinoscitur, id est
This may be related to Pest Burn which flowed through Bainsford (Falkirk). Bantaskin is perhaps related Pettintosale 1450, Pettintoskale 1451, Pettentoskane 1617. If this is Pictish pett (see CPNS, LHEB, and Nicolaisen's Scottish Place-names) it seems incomplete as just 'piece'. Camelon or Falkirk?
Part of the previous?, one of Pont's boigs (Bogton Boigtoun) to the west? Williams offered IE *bheg- 'bend, curve'.
Kolania Colania, var. Kolanika Colanica (Ptolemy II 3 7), a polis of the Damnonii
Colanica (R&C 195)
Timothy Pont's map (National Library of Scotland) shows a Collanoe, presumably Castle Hill, opposite Dullatur (NS7476), as does Gordon, but Blaeu (using Pont's, rather than Gordon's map?) shows it spelled Collanbe (apparently confounding a connecting line on Pont's map with the staff of a b.) If there is a connection here, then Westerwood (NS7677) is preferred.
This 'Middle grove' would be appropriate for a grove at the watershed for the westward flowing Kelvin and the eastward flowing Bonny Water. This would be in Barr Wood. The mid-point of the wall falls between Mollins and Croy Hill. Croy Hill (NS7376) would be preferred if there is to be a connection with a grove in Barr Wood.
Subdobiadon (R&C 197)
Bardowie 'dark height' (NS5873) seems connected. Douglas Moor has some potential. Wilderness Plantation Fortlet (NS5972); Balmuildy, a primary Fort (NS5871), or Summerston Fortlet (NS5772). Nearby is Dowan Farm (NS5774).
Sub- may be a straight-forward Latin 'below'. There is a distinct resemblance of the remainder to Ekwall's reconstructed British river-name for the Wiltshire Deverill *Dubroialon, if recorded as -dub'ialon. If so, the we should seek a fort "below 'the river of the upland fertile region' ". Early Celtic *jalo- 'clearing'.
Carleith Farm (NS4872) Caer Lieth 1699 close by Duntocher Roman fort (NS4972).
Cibra (R&C 199) Castra? Clota? or Pont's Cloberhill near Knightswood NS5269 (well behind the wall). If Castra, then part of the former or following. PNRB has this as the Coria of the Dumnonii which they identify as Barochan Hill NS412690.
Credigone (R&C 200) *Clotagenio *Clota-genium 'Clyde-mouth' Old Kilpatrick (NS4673).
These entries presumably record those sites selected from the remainder of the Antonine Wall. Their number is obviously less than those known. Anyone who has looked at a modern map of the area recognizes the physical difficulties in naming each site and fitting them on the map at any reasonable scale. Ordnance Survey has a font far smaller than what might be expected to be written by pen or stylus for this section at a scale of 1:625,000.
It does not seem, as I'd originally proposed, that a line of text was skipped by a copyist. The Cosmographer appears to have sampled the Antonine Wall rather than list all of the forts. Some may not have been legible (see above).
