Fair use rationale for Image:Sestertius Philip 247-lv lxiii.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Sestertius Philip 247-lv lxiii.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Sources needed[edit]

On one hand, I'm surprised that no sources have been provided for any of the statements in this article. Not because any are controversial, but because the history and activities of the Roman Legions are such a thoroughly researched topic. An afternoon with the usual reference works ought resolve this problem, so deleting content is inappropriate in this situation. On the other hand, I shouldn't be surprised: comparing the current draft with its original form, this article has changed very little, most of which have been cosmetic. This is a pervasive problem with many articles on ancient & medieval history. :-/ -- llywrch (talk) 16:23, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Source of assertion[edit]

In the history section, the final sentence reads, "If the main body of the legion was still stationed in the Balkans, it may have survived much longer as part of the Byzantine Army or have been destroyed during the Bulgarian invasions of 680-1." Presumably this assertion is based on the deduction that V Macedonia would have been merged into the Byzantine Army of Thrace, which according to its article, may have been reorganized into the Thracesian Theme. While there is a lot of speculation here, it is reasonable speculation -- although I also suspect that any continuity between the Roman legion & the thematic unit was unknown to the Byzantine unit: archives do persist, but I doubt any military unit could maintain archives for several centuries. -- llywrch (talk) 22:34, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
