Edit The origin of the legion is uncertain, but Caesar is known to have found a Ninth Legion already based in Gaul in 58 BC, [4] where it remained during the whole campaign of the Gallic wars. After his final victory, Caesar disbanded the legion and settled the veterans in the area of Picenum. After defeating Sextus, they were sent to the province of Macedonia. With Octavian as sole ruler of the Roman world, the legion was sent to Hispania to take part in the large-scale campaign against the Cantabrians 25—13 BC. The nickname Hispana "stationed in Spain" is first found during the reign of Augustus and probably originated at this time. After this, the legion was probably a member of the imperial army in the Rhine border that was campaigning against the Germanic tribes.

The Mystery of the Lost Legion: One of the Most Experienced Legions Vanished

Steve MacGregor What could have happened to the 9th Legion? How could it simply disappear? The fate of the 9th has been the subject of debate for scholars for almost three hundred years. In the period between AD and around AD, one of the most experienced legions vanished from the strength of the Imperial Roman Army. It was last recorded as serving in Britain but there is no record of what subsequently happened to the Legio IX Hispana and its fate has given rise to intense debate and speculation.
