New archaeological research has resulted in a complete re-evaluation of the dress and equipment of the Centurions of the Roman World.

About the Author

Dr Raffaele D'Amato is an experienced Turin-based researcher of the ancient world. He is an external professor to the Athens University School of Philosophy and Material Culture. This is his first book for Osprey.

Giuseppe Rava was born in Faenza in 1963, and took an interest in all things military from an early age. Entirely self-taught, Giuseppe has established himself as a leading military history artist, and is inspired by the works of the great military artists, such as Detaille, Meissonier, Rochling, Lady Butler, Ottenfeld and Angus McBride. He lives and works in Italy.

This is a very interesting volume, looking at the most famous of Roman military figures. As well as detailing the history of the rank in relation to the various organisations of the Roman army we also get a look at the various ‘Italian’ opponents. There are ‘case studies’ of individual centurions where evidence exists.

P03: The Age of Kings
.Centurions in the armies of the first kings; centurions in the army of Servius Tullius
P05: The Early Consular Period
.Organization of the manipular legion; the legion in the 3rd-2nd centuries BC; the centurions
P09: The Late Consular Period
.The Marian reforms; the cohortal legion
P11: Career and Status
.The early periods: L. Siccius; Ennius, the puzzle of the promotion sequence; Spurius Ligustinus;
.The Late Consular Period: centurions of equestrian status; the civil wars; the qualities expected of centurions; pay and rewards
P17: Duties and Service
.Training and discipline; camp duties; punishment for failure; guarding standards; detached service; centurions in council;
.Courage and high casualties; Laevinus; P. Sextus Baculus; Caesius Scaeva
P24; Arms and Equipment
.Weapons
P34: Defensive Equipment
.Helmets; shields; body and leg armour
P37: Clothing and distinctions
