The Optio

This ‘non-commissioned officer’ was the centurion’s right-hand man appointed personally by him.  The Optio was in charge of the instruction and training of all new recruits as well as assisting his Centurion in whatever requirements were necessary in the running of the Century.  Optios often wore ‘crested’ helmets and carried long canes to enforce good order and discipline.
