Thanks for asking a question on www.thisisyourbible.com

Here is a definition of Centurion from Wikipedia:

A centurion was a professional officer of the Roman army.... Most centurions commanded 83 men despite the commonly assumed 100, but senior centurions commanded cohorts, or took senior staff roles in their legion.

I hope you have found this helpful.

God bless,
