You were asked – TMP link

Dr. Simon Elliott wrote an article about his new book, Missing Legion, for Slingshot #336. So what really happened to the lost IXth Legion?

44% said "lost or disbanded in the north of Britain"
9% said "lost or disbanded on the Rhine or Danube"
7% said "transferred to Belgium"

I thought they had be disbanded after the officer were csught selling their men to other units.

The tops of their Legionary standards got messed up, and the IX Legion turned into the X and XI Legions… ;-)
