By this time, the number of Italian recruits in the army had dwindled...much of the army was recruited from the Balkan provinces like Moesia and Illyria, some from Syria, Gaul, and North Africa -

Hes right in this.And they look like soldier in Severan age do.400 years after severus Roman army looked quite different than this.Only those scales are probably too big,usually it were much smaller,especially at the turn of 2/3century.
