Heraclius army organization and units names
#1
Hello all.

How was organized the Roman army under Heraclius? He regrouped the forces of the Balkans and eastern provinces in Asia Minor? The names of ancient units, such as the Tertio Dalmatae, existed in his time?

Regards,
Marco.
I am very interested in the evolution of the roman army from Gallienus to Heraclius (c. 260-640)

Please try to goole "Optimates" and "Procursatores" or "Procoursatores".
You will find related subjects.
"Procursatores" were considered something like an "avantguard" unit.

Kind regards
