Legio I Flavia Gallicana Constantia

Legio I Flavia Gallicana Constantia: one of the legions of the later Roman empire. Its name means "the reliable Flavian legion from Gaul".

Constantius I Chlorus
Constantius I Chlorus
This legion is mentioned in the late-antique text known as Notitia Dignitatum as one of the units belonging to the field army that was stationed in Gaul. The name suggests that it was founded by Constantius I Chlorus (293-306), who belonged to the Flavian family, and it has been assumed that its first assignment was to protect Armorican coast.

This legion is not to be confused with I Flavia Constantia, which served in the east.
