Please can someone tell me How many men are in a cohort? (thats my History question)
R.E Question now: What items does an Orthodox Jewish man wear?
Originally, the cohort was a sub-unit of a Roman legion, usually consisting of 480 legionaries including six centurions. The cohort itself was divided into six centuries of 80 men commanded each by a centurion. However, the first of ten cohorts had five double-sized centuries totaling 800 men.
A cohort was originally one of the ten divisions of a legion in the Roman army, containing from 300 to 600 men.
