This chapter examines the evolution of the auxilia from the accession of Hadrian in AD 117 to the death of Commodus in AD 192. The archaeological evidence from this period is particularly rich, and the rapid evolution of frontier systems means has meant that a large number of tightly datable assemblages are available. This evidence has allowed scholars to identify rapid change in the material cultural of Rome’s armies. But the changes in army and society went well beyond the material. Changes in service conditions for the auxilia reflect shifts in broad policy while the decision made in AD 140 to stop awarding citizenship to the children of honourably discharged auxiliaries had clear implications for the families of many veterans.
