The centurion is Hadrian

Why the Latin centurio and not the apt Greek term ?

Because the equivalent Hebrew term is spoken andriōn.

Aramaic kintriōn means "the Ruler".

So, if he is a positive character, then he is Hadrian, the first Emperor supportive of marcionite Christianity.

While, if he is a negative character, he is the Ruler of this world, the evil demiurge.
