Gaius Marius reformed the legions in the last decade of the 2nd century BC. No longer did a Roman have to own property.
The first, and most obvious result, was the improvement in the military capability of the army. No longer, when war threatened the Republic, did a general have to hastily recruit a citizen army, train it to fight and obey military commands and discipline, then march it off to do battle, raw and un-blooded. This fact alone was instrumental in the growth and success of the Roman military machine and resulted in the continued success of the Romans on the battlefield.
The legions were organised so that a full legion consisted of 6000 men. 4800 were actual soldiers with the rest as non-combatants. They were further subdivided into 10 cohorts of 6 centuries each. Each century being made up of 80 legionaires and 20 non-combatants.
