The martial nature of this assembly is obvious from its organization as well as the fact that it had to meet outside of the pomerium on the Campus Martius, where the legions were chosen. Furthermore, in 357 the Romans banned political assemblies that took place far from the city, and thus we can infer that, from its inception until this point, the comitia centuriata was still viewed in some way as a type of warriors’ assembly, and could be convened by a consul while on campaign. All the same, the creation of this political body in itself provides a clear example of how Rome was gradually leaving clan-based groups of warriors behind in favor of a military organized and commanded by the state.
