  •  Before the Romans left this happened. (6+ / 0-)

    It's a strong indication that the Roman troops were not very loyal to the Empire.  They actually conspired with Saxon and Pict invasion.   The troops the Empire brought in to clean up were Batavian.  this is in the 360s.   The Romans were barely
    Able to control their auxiliaries at this point.  Roman officials were regularly assassinated by subordinates. Probably German subordinates, if indeed the commanders were not already Romanized Germans themselves.
