Legio XXI Rapax


Legio XXI Rapax was a legion of the Roman army whose name name "Rapax" means "rapacious" or "greedy". It is not clear when the legion assumed this name; it may or may not be the same 21st legion Julius Caesar (100-44 BCE) formed before his Gallic Wars and the 21st commanded by Mark Antony (83-30 BCE). Roman emperor Augustus (r. 27 BCE - 14 CE) also formed 21st.
