The second Italian legion (Legio II) was used from 190 AD in Noricum Ripense (Ufernoricum) as a protective force against the increasing German invasions. The legion symbol was the Roman she-wolf. Under Emperor Gallienus (260 - 268) the twins Romulus and Remus were added.

The main location of the legion was in Lauriacum, today's Enns (Lorch) on the Danube. Troop contingents of the Legion were used as needed for Bedaium (Beneficiarier in Seebruck am Chiemsee), for the Inn in Ad Enum (Rosenheim), for Rome for the Praetorian Guard, in the Province of Africa, for the mobile army or as a crew for a burgus in Divita (Deutz) relocated the Rhine.
