II Augusta

A work in progress.

The aim is to map out all the different aspects of the Second Augustan Legion: it’s movements, fortresses, campaigns, inscriptions, up to the end of the Severan Dynasty.

Any input or contributions are greatly appreciated.

I am currently working on adding inscriptions of the legion to the map.
