        a regiment of the Roman army, the number of men composing which
        differed at different times. It originally consisted of three
        thousand men, but in the time of Christ consisted of six
        thousand, exclusive of horsemen, who were in number a tenth of
        the foot-men. The word is used (Matt. 26:53; Mark 5:9) to
        express simply a great multitude.
