Here's a great, if inaccurate, tune to play while you're deploying your Roman legionaries for a game. I'm sure it will make the Gauls, Britons, and Germans a bit nervous!!

LEGIO AETERNA VICTRIX
SIT ITALICA SVA VIS NOSTRVM MVNVS PATRI MARTI
O ROMA O ROMA
SVPRA TERRAM BRITANNORVM VOLAT AQVILA LEGIONVM
A FERVENTI AESTVOSA LIBYA VOLAT AQVILA LEGIONVM SVPRA TERRAM BRITANNORVM

Me personally, "I hear the choppers…" ; )

I love the smell of Greek Fire in the morning. Smells of victory.

Here is a better translation of the cadence.

0:14 Legio aeterna victrix! (Eternal legion victorious!)
0:46 Roma o Roma! (Rome oh Rome!)
1:03 Sit italica sua vis, nostrum munus patri Marti! (Her strength is Italic, our duty to the father Mars!)
1:12 Legio aeterna victrix! Roma o Roma! (Eternal legion victorious! Rome oh Rome!)
1:43 Supra terram Britannorum volat aquila legionum! (Flies the eagle of the legions above the land of the Britons!)
1:52 Legio aeterna victrix! Roma o Roma! (Eternal legion victorious! Rome oh Rome!)
2:09 A ferventi aestuosa Libya volat aquila legionum supra terram Britannorum! (From the scorching hot Libya flies the eagle of the legions above the land of the Britons!)
