Probatio by joriavlis Probatio by joriavlis
In ancient Rome, during the Principate, only the best of the volunteers citizens were able to become legionaries. This picture represents a Probatio, the tests that were performed to the volunteers.

It was such a long time I draw something complete like this, that I was afraid to have lost too much of my skills.

If you are interested in ancient Rome, you can go to In Aciem [link] , my personal and specialized website about Roman Empire, and reenactment of it. Yes, you can see me with a roman armor in there!

On sent la maîtrise dans la tenue du légionnaire (centurion?) XD
Comme d'hab, joli travail sur l'archi et sur les effets de profondeurs !

Vivi, c'est un centurion, on le reconnait à sa crête longitudinale, et surtout à son vitis, le bâton qu'il a dans sa main, qui n'est rien d'autre qu'un cep de vigne. Il s'en servait pour taper sur les légionnaires récalcitrants.

ah c'était donc ça !
Et je suis sûre qu'ils n'hésitaient jamais trop à s'en servir, de leur vitis !

Mes connaissances sur l'armée romaine se limitent aux épisodes de kaamelot qui se passent à Rome....
