Mark Antony, Triumvir and Imperator, 44 - 30 B.C., LEG VIIII
Antony's LEG VIIII was probably the old Caesarean Ninth Legion. It was sometimes known as the IX Macedonica or IX Triumphalis. The IX served in Spain until about 19 B.C., when it acquired the name IX Hispana. It was destroyed in Britain in Hadrian's time (see Rosemary Sutcliff's novel, The Eagle of the Ninth).
