The Sixth Legion (Leg. VI) was considered one of the toughest, most brutal legions in the army. Stationed in Palestine, it had the responsibility of keeping control of the rebellious local population which bristled under the Roman boot.

I think it may have been one of the legions which was engaged in the capture of the Jewish fortress of Masada c. AD 66.

It is said that @ 12,000 Jewish prisoners of war were brought to Rome by Vespasian where they later helped build the Flavian Amphitheater (Colosseum).

DANG!
The people's faces even look Roman!
This picture really looks as if it could have been shot by someone who went back in time to a real Roman Army!
