Abstract. Reforming the system of military command led to the emergence of the title "Protector" in the III century. Protectors formed the emperors or warlords retinue. They also played a role of staff officers and subsequently became commanders of military units. The title "Domestic" appeared at the end of the III century. Probably, Domestics initially performed the tasks of the emperors residence protection, but later on they surrounded military masters, as protectors did, and fulfilled their various orders. Both corps, although very small in number, were elite units of the army and served as a smithy of officers personnel.
Key words and phrases: , , , , , The Roman Empire, Gallienus, Protectors, Domestics, officers corps.
