AUGUSTUS' BAND (Acts 27:1)

A cohort (here translated band) was a division of the Roman army consisting usually of about five hundred men. Certain cohorts were called "Augustan" as a title of honor, "Augustus" being the official designation of the emperor. They often convoyed important prisoners from place to place. Moffatt renders, "An officer of the Imperial regiment."
