Salvete Romani,

I came across an amusing photo the other day. Find the anachronism:

If only they'd had tanks. It would've blown Odoaker right back to the Ostsee.
The danger is not that a particular class is unfit to govern. Every class is unfit to govern.

For those of you wondering where this was taken, or which legion this is, here's the post from the one who took the photo:

For the record, the group is Legio IX Hispana at the recent Marching through History Exposition event in Southern California. We make it a point to take a few pics with the various armoured vehicles that show up at the timeline events we attend.

"Anachronism"? --I don't see any anachronism...

Wait!! --I get it!! ...We've got Punic War Legionaries bearing an Augustan unit designation and kitted up in Early Imperial gear! *That's* what it is. Right...? (Do I get a star?) >({|;-)
