Xandt Sebastian Your response to the cover is overwhelming, thanks everyone for your constant support and faith in my work. Never forget: if you take an arrow to the knee, don't fall for the wrong person.

Trajan’s column, marble. Rome, Italy. 113 A.D. Commemorating Roman emperor Trajan’s victory in the Dacian Wars, completed in 113 AD.

Trajan’s marble column goes back to 113 A. in Rome. This column was built to commemorate the Roman emperor Trajan’s victory in the Dacian Wars. I like the spiral going around the column splitting the images up.

Under Caesar Augustus, the Auxilia was made up of about 250 cohort size (500 men) regiments, or a total of 125,000 men. Auxilia contained heavy infantry equipped similarly to legionaries; and almost all the army's cavalry (both armored & light), and archers and slingers. Under Severus, the total number of regiments increased to about 400 (or 250,000 men).

Men in Ancient Rome could do almost anything. Unlike women they could vote, hold public office, and be in the military. Most young men were enlisted in the military to go to war or defend Rome from invaders.
