The Roman army was the largest and meanest fighting force in the ancient world. They were well trained, equipped and organized. It conquered a vast empire that stretched from Britain all the way to the Middle East. The army was very advanced for its time. When the Romans invaded Britain, their army was so good that it took on armies 10 times its size and won! Britain would have its own great empire much later when it became a naval superpower.
The Roman soldiers were sometimes paid in salt. In fact, the word salary is derived from salt. Salt served as unit of account, had price stability and was liquid, but only amongst the soldiers themselves who traded it for quick necessities, e.g., spear replacement, shields, etc. Besides flavouring food, salt was not a good form of money and thus the Romans further extended the development of currency and spread its use throughout the empire.
