    Been a few years since I was there, but I seem to recall the proportions of the phallus are fairly large which is unusual as smaller phalluses were the preference for the Greek and Roman periods.

    I seem to recall similar phalluses can be seen at the Senhouse Roman Museum at Maryport in Cumbria and also at Chesters on the easter flank of Hadrian’s Wall.

    There was a Greek/Roman God who was well blessed (for want of a better discription):Priapos Priapus(not sure of spelling here) who had isolated worship. Whether this was a site of worship is open for debate. Another theory is it could be graffiti – still seems to be the subject of underpass scrawlings today.
