A Roman Legion was commanded in the field by 6 military Tribunes, all under the overall command of a Consul. Romans were notoriously paranoid about allowing one man too much power, and so limited the opportunity for misuse of its armies by appointing two Consuls as joint commanders in Chief sharing command on alternate days. Hannibal famously exploited this weakness, luring army after Consular army to its doom!

This set of 4 highly detailed metal figures represent a military Tribune of the Republic and a Consul, complete with his body guard of Lictors.
