Comment: Dig mascot named!

Our Roman Centurion rubber duck has been enjoying himself greatly - floating along the water from spring that appeared in the site compound, and generally entertaining the diggers.  But he remained un-named.  Fortunately one of the diggers came up with a moniker: Dux!

Dux is the Latin equivalent to modern word Duke. The title Dux was used in the later Roman period for someone who commanded provincial troops.
