Pannonia Superior

This is a preliminary list of Roman units (Bold letters) to be collected in the next few months. From the sources listed below, these units were present in Pannonia Superior prior to Trajan’s campaign in Dacia. Next to each unit are the number of elements to be painted and when complete will total the number needed for two commands. Adding an ally, Rome can take the field in a battle option of DBA3. 

The double strength auxilia or milliarie (M) are represented with two elements. Two such cohors have a mounted detachment (E) of light horse and a replacement for the LH noted on the Early Imperial Roman list of II/56.
