A Roman fort probably to be identified with modern day Dalginross.

Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 9 D4 Victoria?

Barrington Atlas follows Rivet & Smith by identifying Victoria with modern Inchtuthil, and Bannatia with Dalginross. Frere rather persuasively equates Inchtuthil with Pinnata Castra, and with less certainty suggests that Victoria is modern day Dalginross. RCAHMS tentatively accepts Frere's view.

This place was almost certainly close to the site of the battle on Mons Graupius, for which Feacham (1970) suggested a location on Craig Rossie in the Ochil Hills, close to Duncrub, Perthshire. See www.romaneranames.uk/g/graupius.pdf for the logic. Victoria would logically be the Roman camp at Dunning, from which Roman troops marched out to that battle. Other suggestions do not fit the nearby pattern of names in the Ravenna Cosmography.
