Roman Praetorian Aquilifer


The Praetorian Aquilifer was a distinguished figure within the Praetorian Guard of ancient Rome, entrusted with the sacred duty of carrying the aquila, or eagle standard, of the cohort. The aquila held immense symbolic significance, representing the honor, loyalty, and martial prowess of the unit. The Aquilifer was typically a seasoned veteran chosen for their valor, discipline, and unwavering loyalty to the emperor.

In battle, the Aquilifer played a pivotal role, leading the cohort into the fray and serving as a rallying point for the troops. The loss of the aquila was considered a grave dishonor, and its safeguarding was paramount. Therefore, the Aquilifer was often surrounded by a retinue of guards, tasked with protecting both the standard and its bearer at all costs.
