Legio II Isaura

Legio II Isaura was a pseudocomitatensis Roman legion, levied no later than under Diocletian, and possibly already present under Probus. As their name suggests, II Isaura and its twin legion III Isaura were guarding the Isauria territory at the time of the Notitia Dignitatum, to defend it from the incursions of the mountain peoples. It is possible that in the beginning they were supported by I Isaura Sagittaria. According to Ammianus Marcellinus,[1] in 360, they were stationed in Bezabde with II Armeniaca, and II Parthica, when the king of Persia, Shapur II besieged and conquered the city, killing many of the inhabitants.[2]See also[edit]List of Roman legionsReferences and external links[edit]Ritterling's "Legio", through accountGuimarães Bernardo, Isaura, 1986, J'ai Lu, ParisLegion of Mary, LEGIO MARIAE: The Official Handbook of the Legion of Mary, 1985, Concilium Legionis Mariae, IrelandBlatty, William Peter, My Naam is Legio, 1983, (Cape Town: Tafelberg, 1983) 0624019896Legio Mariae.
