Here are some micellanious facts concerning Roman warfare

Camp Commandant-  was responsible for the organisation of the camp. The Romans were very careful about their camps - no Roman army halted for a single night without digging a trenches and fortifying its camp. Each soldier took his share in establishing the camp and setting up the camp the next day. The quaestor's duty was to look after all the money matter.

The Roman soldiers won their battles just as much from their staying - power as by their courage. They had to be strong and fit, for in addition to his weapons each soldier had to carry provisions for two weeks and tools for pitching camp.

When the soldiers went into line of battle to fight, the rows of men were called acies;when they were marching in a column it was called agmen.
