According wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_legion

During the roman republic a legion was formed by 4,500 men: 3,000 men were infantry (arround 1,000 velites, 1,000 hastati and 1,000 princeps), together with about 1,200 velites and 300 cavalry.

Based on that, you could establish that each card will represent 500 men for the infantry, 400 for the velites and 150 for horses. So you will play with Velites (x3), Princeps (x2), Triari (x2) and Hastati (x2), equites (x2: I would take one of each class).

This is how I would create a legion, looking for a balance between realism and playability
