Not a lot is known about Legion VII, though we do know that Julius Caesar's Legio VII Claudia was fighting under Octavian so this was likely one of the legions that Antony himself raised. After Actium this legion was likely either disbanded or incorporated into one of Octavian's legions as nothing is recorded of it.
