References to late Roman army???

Evidence for equites legionis being divided into turmae:

XI 1526 is cited by Passerini (loc. Cit.) as attesting the rank of decurio legionis, whose existence might be taken as support for turmae. The inscription is lost, the only reference to it being by an antiquarian. It reads: Thaliae Cocliae l. Peregrino decurioni leg. XIII, decurioni Pisis, quaestori ad aerar. II, heredes. This does not make sense as it stands and the existence of this officer must therefore remain suspect.

…The engraving on a ring found at Baden, and presumably lost in the period 43 to 69 when XXI Rapax was stationed at Vindonissa and at the latest before the principate of Trajan when the legion disappeared, reads eq. leg. XXI Sexti t. It has been suggested that t. is an abbreviation for turmae. (VIII, 10024, 31. Cf. also Passerini, loc. Cit.)
