£037

Back to back with the cavalry, and looking out upon the streets R S, R/ S', the Triarii of the two legions were quartered in the areas 2 and 2'. Each area contained 5000 square feet, and was allotted to a maniple of 60 men ; hence, according to the calculation here followed, a dragoon and his horse were allowed as much space as 4 foot soldiers.

In the areas marked 3 and 3' facing the Triarii were quartered the principes of the two legions ; each of these areas contained 10,000 square feet, and was allotted to a maniple of two centuries, that is, 120 men.

In the areas marked 4 and 4;, back to back with the principes, and looking out upon the streets V W, V7 W, were quartered the Hastati of the two legions, the number of men being the same as in the Principes, and an equal space being assigned to them.

facing the legionary Hastati, in the areas marked 5 and 5;, were the cavalry of the allies.

The total number was 600 to each legion, but of these £ or 200 were separated under the name of extraordinarily and quartered in a different part of the camp. Consequently, each of the spaces 5 and 5' was calculated to accommodate 40 dragoons with their horses ; and allowing them the same space as the legionary cavalry, each of these areas must have contained somewhat more than 13^333 square feet.

Back to back with the cavalry of the allies, and looking towards the rampart which enclosed the camp, the infantry of t the allies were quartered in the areas marked 6 and 6'. The total number was 3000 for each legion, but of these ^ or 600 were separated as extraordinarii and quartered in a different part of the camp. Hence there would remain 2400, or 240 for each of the spaces 6 and 6;, and these accordingly contained 20,000 square feet.

The open space immediately behind the tents and baggage of the tribunes, extending to the right
