There is no direct equivalent to the Roman Military rank system and today's. Roman ranks, especially when getting to the top ranks, tended to be a mixture of civil and political as well as military positions. These positions changed over time from the Roman Republic to the Roman Empire The following is a rough ordering of these ranks and a very rough equivalent of today's military ranks. Legate (roughly equal to General) Tribune (similarly to an Executive Officer (XO). Second in Command) Prefect (Military Administrator about what a modern-day Adjutant is) Primas Pilus (The Senior Centurion) Centurion (Commander of a Centuria of 80 men) Princepales (smilitar to Non-Commissioned Officers today (NCOs)) Aquilifier (Legionary Standard-Bearer) Signifer (Paymaster and Standard-Bearer) Miles (Common Soldier, i.e.. Private today) There are a number of other ranks which have been left out for simplification. more
