Abstract. At the beginning of the III century the legion structure didnt practically differ from the structure of the legion of the Late Republic. This issue was made clear through the graphic symbols found on some inscriptions. It was suggested that these symbols corresponding to six ranks of centurions in each cohort should point to the century place on the battlefield, which allowed talking about certain continuity with the manipular order of the Republican era that existed in the III century.
Key words and phrases: , , , , , , the Roman army, legion, cohort, maniple, century, centurion.
