THE ROMAN CORNICEN
A horn-player in the Roman Legion was called cornicen. The cornicen's job was to signal salutes to officers and sound orders to the legions. Cornicines always marched at the head of the centuries, with the tesserary and the signifer where he took his orders to sound his horn in specific signals burring battle. Each audible signal was a direct command informing the soldiers which exercise to perform on the field. For example, he might give the signal for soldiers to gather around their standard. The cornicines were also used as assistants to a centurion. The cornicen was a duplicary or a soldier who got double the basic pay of the legionary.

 
The Roman Legionary Horn (cornu), was carried and blown by a legionary in charge. The cornicen, coded the general's orders into signals and broadcast them over the field during battles. The Roman blowing instrument, straight and made in bronze, was called "Tuba". It was made in different models, both for infantry and cavalry, the latter being shorter.
