NOTE: The Roman Marines (Manipularii) use the exact same rank structure as the Roman Infantry.
NOTE 1: * These ranks were created by me to fill out the upper echelons that was required since Rome never had a commander above Fleet Commander. Although the latin is correct for the rank, as is the translation.
Nauta - Sailor - There are many differing classifications for each type of Nauta and below Trierarchus rank the land ranks are used.
*Legatus Augusti Classis - Imperial Legate of the Fleet - Roman naval commander. Equivilent to the American Fleet Admiral. Senatorial Rank Only.
