This passage sets out in detail the administrative setup of the Spanish provinces under the early principate. It conforms closely to the general account given by Cassius Dio in No. 4, except that legati Augusti pro praetore of praetorian rank had later no subordinate legati under them, and that later legionary legates commanded one legion only. Very few consular legati Augusti pro praetore had subordinate legati with judicial duties (legati iuridici); they are recorded only in Spain and in Britain.
