The Legion by Simon Scarrow
This is the ongoing saga of our Roman friends Marco and Cato and their adventures. They are on the trail of Ajax the rebel gladiator. He is now going around with his band of rebels killing Romans, leaving one alive and making sure that, that person knows it was Marco and Cato who had attacked them. All of this causes a great deal of upset with the locals.
They chase him to Egypt and end up in prison...
At the same time the Nubians to the south also start a rebellion. Eventually Ajax joins with the Nubians and the governor of Egypt orders Cato and Marco to join the twenty-second legion and help defeat the Nubians and Ajax. The only issue is can they cope with an enemy that is considerably more numerous than they are and a legion that is more used to sitting by the pool under the shade of a palm tree..and of course after many skirmishes – do they manage to catch Ajax..
