Attested: Veromo at position 206 in the Ravenna Cosmography
Where: Probably Dalginross Roman fort, at NN77322104, near Comrie, Perthshire, a Glenblocker fort at the edge of the Scottish highlands, near where the River Lednock and the Water of Ruchill feed into the river Earn.
Name origin: Ver- could have many meanings, with PIE *wer- ‘to look’, as in wary, possibly the best candidate here. The -omo part might fit PIE *omǝ- ‘to proceed with energy, make firm’.
Notes: Ptolemy's Βανατια was probably a nearby hillfort. Beware: a small change in logic could make a change in name-to-place assignments ripple through many forts in Scotland.
