Special officersEdit

Aquila

Selucian Aquila

  • Aquilifer: A single position within the Legion. The Aquilifer is the Legion's Standard or Aquila (Eagle) bearer and is an enormously important and prestigious position. Losing the aquila is considered a great dishonor. The next step up would be in a post as a Centurion. He is paid twice the basic wage.
  • Signifer: Each Century has a Signifer (59). He is responsible for the men's pay and savings, and the standard bearer for the Centurial Signum, a spear shaft decorated with medallions and often topped with an open hand to signify the oath of loyalty taken by the soldiers. It is this banner that the men from each individual Century will rally around. A soldier can also gain the position of Discentes signiferorum, or standard bearer in training. He is paid twice the basic wage.
  • Cornicen (Horn blower): Works hand in hand with the Signifer drawing the attention of the men to the Centurial Signum and issuing the audible commands of the officers.
  • Imaginifer: Carries the Standard bearing the image of the Emperor as a constant reminder of the troop's loyalty to him.

Low-level officersEdit

  • Optio: One for each Centurion (59), they are appointed by the Centurion from within the ranks to act as his second in command. Paid twice the basic wage. This rank is similar to the modern First Lieutenant.
  • Tesserarius: (Guard Commander) Again there are 59 of these, or one for each Century. They act seconds to the Optios. Paid one and a half times the basic wage. This rank is similar to the modern Second Lieutenant.
  • Decurion: Led a Contubernium, or "Tent Group", of 10 men. Each Century has 10 of these. Paid one and a quarter times basic wage. This rank is similar to the non-commissioned officer Sergeant.

Mid-level officersEdit

Selucian Centurio in his traditional uniform

  • Centurio: Each legion has 59 or 60 centurions, one to command each century of the 10 cohorts. They are the backbone of the professional army and are the career soldiers who ran the day to day life of the soldiers as well as issuing commands in the field. They are generally moved up from the ranks, but in some cases can be direct appointments from the Emperor or other higher ranking officials. The cohorts are ranked from the First to the Tenth and the Century within each cohort ranked from 1 to 6, with only 5 Century in the First Cohort (For a total of 59 Centurions and the Primus Pilus). The Century that each Centurion commands is a direct reflection of his rank. (Command of the First Century of the First Cohort is the highest and the 6th Century of the 10th Cohort is the lowest). This rank is compared to the modern Captain.

(highest rank at last)

    • Hastatus Posterior
    • Hastatus Prior
    • Princeps Posterior
    • Princeps Prior
    • Pilus Posterior
    • Pilus Prior


  • Primi Ordines: The five Centurions of the First Cohort, and included the Primus Pilus. They, excluding the Primus Pilus, are paid 30 times the base wage. This rank is similar to the modern Captain, but senior to all other Centurions, save the Primus Pilus and Pilus Prior.

(highest rank at last)

    • Hastatus Posterior
    • Princeps Posterior
    • Hastatus
    • Princeps
    • Primus Pilus


  • The Pilus Prior: The ten Centurions of the First Centuries of each of the ten Cohorts are called Pilus Prior and are the most senior Centurion within their respective cohort. While the legion is in battle formation, the Pilus Prior is given command of the entire cohort, with each of the Centurions as his lieutenants. The Primus Pilus is also a Pilus Prior, only the most senior of all the Centurions within the Legions. These positions are usually held by experienced veteran soldiers who had been moved up within the ranks. This rank is similar to the modern Captain, but subordinate to the Primus Pilus.

Senior officersEdit

  • Dux: A general in charge of two or more legions. This office is similar to the modern Major General.
  • Legatus legionis: The overall legionary commander. This post is generally appointed by the emperor to a man who was usually a former Tribunus Laticlavius and halts command for 3 or 4 years, although can serve for a much longer period. This office is similar to the modern Brigadier General.
  • Tribunus Laticlavius: Named for the broad striped toga wear by men of senatorial rank, this tribune is appointed by the Emperor or the Senate. Though generally quite young and less experienced than the Tribuni Angusticlavii, he serves as second in command of the legion, behind the Legate. This office is similar to the modern Colonel.
  • Praefectus Castrorum: The camp Prefect. Generally he is a long serving veteran who had been promoted through the ranks of the centurions and is 3rd in overall command. This rank is similar to the modern Lieutenant Colonel.
  • Tribuni Angusticlavii: Each legion has five military tribunes of equestrian (knight) class citizens. They are in many cases career officers and serves many of the important administrative tasks of the Legion, but still serves in a full tactical command function during engagements. This rank is similar to the modern Major.
  • Primus Pilus: The "First File" or "first spearman" is the commanding centurion of the first cohort and the senior centurion of the entire Legion. When the Primus Pilus retires he is guaranteed entry into the Equestrian Class. He is paid 60 times the base wage. This rank is similar to a modern Captain, but of the highest degree.
