Those late Roman soldiers on the bottom belong to the 4th century with the reforms of Constantine (306 - 337 AD)  and about as far back as Diocletian (284 - 305 AD). Look up the military reforms of those emperors or type in "4th century Roman Army" on internet search. Feel free to ask me more questions if you have any.

The book is in French, just look at how some of the other words are spelled.
