The dating of the careers of M. Maenius Agrippa and T. Pontius Sabinus, both of whom participated in an expeditio Britannica during the reign of Hadrian, remains uncertain. The case for the expeditio being the known visit of the Emperor to Britain in 122 or an otherwise unattested occasion later in the reign is considered in relation to new archaeological evidence from the fort at Maryport where Maenius Agrippa was based. The possibility that the well-known series of dedications to IOM at Maryport could relate to either of the days when the Roman army took the annual oath of allegiance to the emperor is discussed.
