Legio XVI Gallica
Legio sexta decima Gallica ("Gaulish Sixteenth Legion") was a legion of the Imperial Roman army. The legion was recruited by Octavian in 41/40 BC, and was disbanded after surrendering during the Batavian rebellion (AD 70); Emperor Vespasian created a new legion, the XVI Flavia Firma. The emblem of the legion was probably a lion.
