Centurion was a military rank, common in many cultures.

The rank was used by the ancient Romans on Earth. Roman centurions would occasionally be put in charge of patrolling the various Roman provinces. In 2369, Richard Galen compared Jean-Luc Picard, who was on a survey mission, to a Roman centurion patrolling for the Empire. (TNG: "The Chase")

The Romulan Star Empire also used the rank of centurion. A crew member of the Romulan Bird-of-Prey that destroyed several Earth outposts along the Earth-Romulan Neutral Zone in 2266 was a centurion. (TOS: "Balance of Terror")

Captain Kirk infiltrated a Romulan ship as a centurion in order to steal its cloaking device in 2268. (TOS: "The Enterprise Incident")

Bochra held the rank of centurion in 2366. (TNG: "The Enemy") Another centurion served as a guard aboard the IRW Khazara under Commander Toreth in 2369. (TNG: "Face of the Enemy")

According to The Making of Star Trek (p. 256) the Romulan rank of centurion is the generic rank of all officers.
