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.
