Auxilia Legio

Hardened campaigners, these soldiers have pledged their lives to the Empire.

Although the Eastern Roman Empire significantly altered its military style from that of its western arm in later centuries, Eastern armies remained relatively similar in the years immediately following the political divide of AD395. The forces of both Roman Empires remained infantry-heavy, with the Legions - 'Legio' - forming the bulk of any Roman army. The Notitia Dignitatum describes how the Legions were divided into units of comitatenses, auxilia, and the elite palatini. These units were broken down further according to their role - 'comitatus praesantales' were Imperial escorts that traditionally remained with the Emperor at the capital, but also fought with him on campaign. Standard comitatenses were deployed as strategic garrisons, and finally limitanei controlled the frontier itself, acting as an early warning system for barbarian incursions.
