Patrae mint 32-31BC

The 20th legion was founded in 49 BC by Julius Caesar.

B. The 20th Valeria was founded by Pompey in 84 BC, it was given the vacant 20th number by Augustus in 31-30 BC. Augustus granted the legion the title "Victrix" in about 25 BC.

Unfortunately I can't link the 20th legion of Mark Antony to an exact Imperial Legion. David Sear writes that Legio XX may have been raised after Actium, in which case it could have contained some elements of Antony's disbanded twentieth.
