“A centurion was in charge of a century made up of 80 legionary soldiers.
His equipment was very different so his men could quickly find him in battle.
He carried a vine stick as a badge of rank. He would use this to punish his men!
The horsehair crest on his helmet went from side to side.
He wore medals on his chest, awarded for bravery in battle.
Centurions could marry, and their wives lived in the barracks with them.
They did not march, they rode on horseback.”
