When did rome have its largest army?

The largest Roman army to ever take the battle field was in 216 BC at the battle of Cannae against Hannibal. The Roman army numbered 85,000 to 110,000 depending on the different sources. Hannibal's army numbered around 35,000 to 45,000. And guess what the Romans lost, hell they didn't just loss they got annihilated. They lost 85% of the army that day. According to some accounts the Roman's dead numbered around 50,000 to 70,000 and another 10,000 to 15,000 captured. The battle on Cannae introduced a new concept in warfare, the Battle of Annihilation. If one takes that the mid range of the number of Roman's dead of 60,000, Cannae was the single bloodiest one day battle in Human history even to this day. Only the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan surpass it.

What was a roman soldier in charge on 100 men called?

Centurion, but this is a modern day error. The Roman army had no unit of 100 men. The smallest unit that a centurion would be responsible for is 80 men. A century in the Roman army consisted of 80 men led by a centurion. The confusion rises from the root of the word "centurion". The title is not derived from the word "centum" which means 100, but is derived from the word "centuria" which was the voting assembly, as at the founding of the city, officers were appointed from these assemblies.
