“It is agreed. Commander Erasmus, after you. We must announce our decision to our men.” The committee of officers left the stuffy tent. The dusty streets of the castellum were packed with legionnaires, milling about aimlessly.
“Sound Roll Call!” Paulos ordered. The notes of a horn echoed through the camp, calling the men to assemble at the parade groups. Legionnaires ran down the vias, carefully avoiding the group of commanders as they scurried to their places. By the time the commanders reached the central parade grounds, the better part of three entire legions had assembled, joined by their attached auxiliary cavalry and artillery units. Julius and the commanders climbed the small wooden platform, hastily assembled, so that they could address their men.
Commander Erasmus shook hands with each of his fellow commanders, before taking his place at the head of the small party.
