Centurion of the third Century AD

When compared to the centurion of earlier age, the centurion of the third century remains virtually unchanged. He even still carries a stick with which to keep his legionaries in line with. Just like his predecessor his helmet and shield would look much like that of the contemporary legionary. And like the soldiers, his sword, too, has now changed from the short gladius to the longer spatha.
