Abstract The partition magister equitum / magister peditum had an administrative rather than tactical or strategical meaning. Moreover, the titles magister equitum et peditum and magister utriusque militiae did not appear, nor had the same use in both partes. In the eastern half of the Empire, under the reign of Valens, mag. equ. et ped., then mag. utr. mil. were created, first for the regional generals, then for the praesentales. The western part kept the traditional partition mag. equ. / mag. ped. until 395, then the title mag. utr. mil. was introduced in the West by Stilicon, but had a different meaning than in the East: it was a distinction that only one general at a time could obtain (except for retired generals).
