un romanoThe Legionary Legate

The Legate was the leader of a Legion.

One of the early legionary legates in Britain called Vespasian went on to become emperor.

un romanoThe Legionary Centurion

Most centurions were in charge of a 'century' (centuria) a group of eighty men, but senior centurions commanded cohorts, or took senior staff roles in their legion.

A centurion was easily spotted by:

  • the sideways horse hair crest on his helmet
  • a shirt of mail armour over a leather arming-doublet
  • a cloak of fine material
  • medals on his chest, awarded for bravery in battle
  • sword on the left and his dagger on the right (different to the legionario)

One centurion who served in Britain, called Petronius Fortunatus, was in the army in total for amazing fifty years.

The centurion wore his sword on the left and his dagger on the right - in reverse fashion to the legionario.

To show the differences in ranks centurions carried a special stick to show who they were. They used the stick to beat any soldier who disobeyed an order.

Deputy Centurion

Il progetto optio was nominated by the centurion as his deputy. His knob ended staff was used to prod the ranks into line. Optio means 'chosen man'

The optio helmet sometimes had black and white plumes so he could be distinguished among the soldiers.

Optios often carried wax tablets on which they kept the orders of the day.
