I see what you're trying to do
>>
>>64803
Yes, depict Roma as it was.
>>
>>64756

Seems a bit short of manpower.
>>
>not using lorica hamata
>>
>>64756
Didnt the centurion wear specialized hamata armour? Even in early AD evidence shows that when the majority was segmentata, the centurion still always wore his special hamata. They also died at higher rates than any other middle rank in any other antiquity army.

>Black legionary

From which period roughly?
Didn't realize Centurions wore a cuirass, not sure though. Thought it was the seg or hamata.
>>
>>66416
There would have most certainly been blacks in the roman army defending upper egypt, recruited from that area like most roman garrisons.
>>
I always loved the way the Roman legions are portrayed in Asterix. All the centurions are always gruff career military guys and all the legionnaires are reluctant, cowardly conscripts.
>>
>>64756
>hiring foreign mercenaries
This is the best representation of Rome I've seen yet.
>>
This makes me think, were they really colored red? True red dye was something hard to come by until the discovery of the americas and a certain kind of beatle. What did they use to dye their clothes?
>>
>>66519
Then they would have been auxiliaries. Only Italians could become legionaries.
>>
>>66736
>a certain kind of beatle
John, Paul, George, or Ringo?
>>
>>66789
Kek, maybe in the republic/early empire

There werent enough italians for that senpai
>>
>>66836
And OP posted a pic of the legion of the early empire.
>>
>>66888
Actually that looks at least 100AD
>>
>>67007
And?
>>
>>67019
Would have expanded their recruitment by then
>>
>>67034
Not until around 200AD when everyone in the empire was made a citizen by default, not just Italians.
>>
>>66836
>>67034
There were no negroids in the Roman Legion. If you have any evidence for negroids in the Roman Legion, post it, otherwise I'm reporting you and your thread.
>>
>>66789
Only Romans, not Italians, could become legionaires, there were a lot of Romans outside of Italy.

One of Caesars legions was wholy made of non-romans by the way so it was not forbidden for non-romans to serve in the legions.
>>
>>67069
>at least 100ad
>at least

Meaning that picture represents an era where foreign legionaries were a thing or at least on the verge of becoming a thing, theres no way they had enough italians to fill out every legion, germans and gauls specifically were all over the place.

This guy was a legionaire

Here, a black Roman commander. He killed loads of jews

Nope.

>>67175
>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Maurice

He was only depicted as Sub-saharan as far back as the 12th century. Try again.
>>
>>67161
>theres no way they had enough italians to fill out every legion
The legions were not as big as you seem to think they were. Only Italians were allowed into the legions until the Antonine decree of 212, this is a fact. Auxiliaries vastly outnumbered the legions, but they were not a part of the legions.

>>67175
>born in AD 250
This was after the Antonine decree.

Lusius looke like a blacka to me man
>>
>>67314
And? where there no legions after 250 AD? That guy clearly stated: There were no blacks in the Roman legions. Not: There were no blacks in the Roman legions before 250 AD.
>>
>>67351
No I misread.

Most Romans were actually black. Just go home kid.
