Revision as of 18:04, 17 May 2017
The Nova Roman Cohors VI Carpathica is the legionary reenactment unit of Regio Rostallonensis of Pannonia Provincia. It is one of the most active reenactment groups within Nova Roma. The Cohors VI Carpathica reenactment unit was founded by C. Villius Vulso in 2011. The cohors Carpathica was started by a section of the Legio XXI Rapax, but soon became a separate unit within Nova Roman Pannonia, specifically connected to Regio Rostallonensis.
The ceremonial supreme commanders of all legions within Nova Roma are the consules of Nova Roma, and the praetores are the vice-supreme commanders. The provincial ceremonial commander-in-chief of the Cohors VI Carpathica (and all other legionary units in Provincia Pannonia), is the governor of Pannonia, the legatus pro praetore Cn. Cornelius Lentulus, and the proquaestor of the provincia Sp. Porcius Gemma is the provincial deputy commander-in-chief.
The actual commander of the Cohors VI Carpathica, appointed specifically as commander-in-chief of the cohors, is the praefectus cohortis C. Villius Vulso, with the legionary rank tesserarius. He exercises command on his own.
Missions and operations of the legion are directed by the praefectus cohortis C. Villius Vulso, and he is assisted by two chief officers, tesserarius C. Villius Macro, responsible for military drill and reenactment, and decanus P. Fabius Torquatus Vegetius, responsible for logistics and organization.
