Roman Legions tent. One tent served for the Contubernium, the smallest tactical unit in the Roman army. Most sources indicate that the tents of roman legions were made of goatskins. This is reported by archaeological findings and iconography. According to reports, a standard Roman tent of this type housed 8 to 10 people, 2 of whom were on watch, so 6 to 8 people slept at any given time. Sources also say that one mule was intended for transporting such a tent. At least in the roman legions after the reforms of Gaius Marius.

Interestingly, in the German army of the Second World War, a tent made of triangular sheets, so-called Zelt, had 4 people, three of whom slept and one was on guard. And our Grosse Stabszelt is amazingly similar to the Roman Tabernaculum.
