The presence of a milestone, a stone marking distances, bearing the name of the emperor Hadrian discovered nearby reinforces the idea that the road was built during Hadrian’s rule. The emperor is best known for building walls around his colossal empire, including Hadrian's wall in Carlisle. Coins from the Roman era were found sticking out between the paving stones of the road. Among them, a coin depicting the prefect of Judea, Pontius Pilate dating back to 29AD and a coin from Year Two of the Great Jewish Revolt of 67AD were discovered.
