Chinese in Roman London?

I saw reports of a possible skeleton found in London that some said looked East Asian.

Prof Mary Beard discusses. They might have been East Asian, or maybe their ancestors were East Asian...

in other words , they attest to the multicultural world of the Roman empire. But they do not mean that these are a pair of people who made their way, in one generation, from China to Rome.
