Troops in Rome, AD408-410?

Quote: the Vigilium of Rome is mentioned in ND Occ. IV 4

Hmm, you're quite right! At least, there's still a prefect of the vigiles... I wonder why commentators like Jones have assumed that there were no actual vigiles?...

And the point about the citizens of Constantinople being armed after Adrianople is a good one too.

I have attached all 12 posts after this one to the 'Late Roman Unit Sizes' thread, because it nearly continued where we ended there 3 days ago. :-D
