Eagle (in royal banners)

.

It was the ensign of the ancient kings of Babylon and Persia, of the Ptolemies and Seleuʹcidēs. The Romans adopted it in conjunction with other devices, but Maʹrius made it the ensign of the legion, and confined the other devices to the cohorts. The French under the Empire assumed the same device.
