 The Roman Legionary was a professional heavy infantryman of the Roman army after the Marian reforms. Legionaries had to be Roman citizens under the age of 45. They enlisted for twenty-five years of service, a change from the early practice  for only listing for a campaign. The last five years were veteran lighter duties.
