Our Legio I Italica, led by legatus C. Cornelius Celer Rufus, in Castra Ovum, fortress of the local Legio XX Valeria Victrix of Britannia
The current praetor C. Petronius Stephanus Turpilianus, deputy supreme commander-in-chief of the Nova Roman Reenactment Army, and the praefectus praetorio Cn. Cornelius Lentulus, who as legatus pro praetore is also commander-in-chief in Britannia, surrounded by two Nova Roman legions: the local Legio XX Valeria Victrix of Britannia, and the Legio I Italica from Provincia Thracia, a unit commanded directly by the praetor C. Petronius.

The Nova Roman Legio XX Valeria Victrix is an allied legionary reenactment unit of Provincia Britannia. The Legio XX Valeria Victrix was founded by A. Ocratius Maximus Gittus, and it was recruited as an official allied legion of Nova Roma in a.d. VII Kal. Oct. Sex. Lucilio (II) A. Tullia (II) cos. MMDCCLXXV a.u.c. who is also the current praefectus castrorum and a retired centurio. The legion resides in Castra Ovum, their military camp which is also a military municipality of Nova Roma.


The ceremonial supreme commanders of all legions within Nova Roma are the consules of Nova Roma, and the praetores are the vice-supreme commanders.

The provincial ceremonial commander-in-chief of the Legio XX Valeria Victrix (and all other legionary units in Provincia Britannia), is the governor of Britannia and the Dioecesis Europae Celticae et Germanicae, the dux et legatus pro praetore Cn. Cornelius Lentulus, and the proquaestor of Britannia, C. Petronius Stephanus Turpilianus is the provincial deputy commander-in-chief.

The ceremonial commander-in-chief of the legion is now the praetor C. Petronius Stephanus Turpilianus, who will automatically become the legatus legionis after his praetorship expires. He was appointed as the ceremonial commander of the legion, but his current magistracy as praetor trumps any lower political commander offices, such as legatus, so during his tenure as praetor he ceremonially commands the legion as the praetor of our res publica.

The actual commander of our allied Legio XX Valeria Victrix, appointed specifically as commander-in-chief of the legion, is the praefectus castrorum A. Ocratius Maximus Gittus. He exercises command on his own. Missions and operations of the legion are directed by the praefectus castrorum and his fellow officers.
