The site now includes freely downloadable copies of the vast majority
of books and journals published by L'ƒcole franaise d'Athnes since
the late 19th century. Unfortunately the Bibliothque de l'Ecole

but is expected soon. The collections include Bibliothques de
l'Ecole franaise d'Athnes et de Rome - SŽrie Athnes, Corpus des
Inscriptions de Delphes, Exploration ArchŽologique de DŽlos, Fouilles
de Delphes, and Sites et monuments. A number of the volumes are
available in English and German as well as French.

http://www.novaroma.org/via_romana/names.html
It has excellent suggestions.

The Aeneid is among them:

Salvete,

So, I'm aware that gaining citizenship in the early empire was possible but
not easy for foreigners, and that there were several lesser forms given out
as rewards (for instance, the Latin Rights?) My first question is this,
how much service would a group of foreigners have to do for the
emperor/empire to be realistically granted citizenship? How about
individuals from that group? If the answer is "wouldn't happen", then what
forms of lesser rights might be offered? Would they be able to buy
property in Rome?

Here is a second question: if you wanted to put on a small public
performance (the size of a puppet show, not an actual play) where could you
set it up? Would the forum be available to newcomers? Would you have to
purchase an area like at a flea market?

Salvete,

So, I'm aware that gaining citizenship in the early empire was possible but
not easy for foreigners, and that there were several lesser forms given out
as rewards (for instance, the Latin Rights?)

Sulla: It was difficult gaining citizenship during the Republic. By the time of the Empire, gaining citizenship was easier to where Emperor Caracalla via an edictum awarded all free men in the Empire citizenship.

My first question is this,
how much service would a group of foreigners have to do for the
emperor/empire to be realistically granted citizenship?

Sulla: It would depend. The one area that this is documented would be for those non-citizens who entered military service as Auxilia. They would need to serve for 25 years.

How about
individuals from that group?

Sulla: In the (Late) Republic it was common for commanders to award citizenship on those individuals who assisted him. I think one of the best examples is when Gn. Pompeius Magnus awarded citizenship to Lucius Cornelius Balbus for services rendered during his tenure in Spain.

If the answer is "wouldn't happen", then what
forms of lesser rights might be offered?

Sulla: Latin Rights would have been offered during the Republic. But, if I recall correctly that fell into disuse after the Social War.

Would they be able to buy
property in Rome?

Sulla: Interesting question. That I do not know.
Here is a second question: if you wanted to put on a small public
performance (the size of a puppet show, not an actual play) where could you
set it up?

Sulla: Are you talking about in ancient Rome or here in Nova Roma?

Would the forum be available to newcomers? Would you have to
purchase an area like at a flea market?

Respectfully,

Lucius Cornelius Sulla Felix

I will readily admit that I am not an expert in these matters - and I
would imagine that those who are will correct me if I'm wrong - but the
above seems to have required extraordinary service, tinged with a flavor
of "THIS is how a True Roman would act!". As such, I don't think you
could set a firm measure on how much was "sufficient". As L. Cornelius
Sulla has pointed out, 25 years of service in the Auxilia was considered
that way... but if you think of the span, the chances of surviving that
term of service, you can see that it, too, fits the term
"extraordinary".

> If the answer is "wouldn't happen", then what
> forms of lesser rights might be offered?

IIRC, Latin rights (or some "custom-designed" subsets of rights) were
granted to many foreigners who cooperated closely with Rome, as for
example for someone governing a city under the aegis of Rome.

My guess with regard to the forum - although I have no references for it
- would be "no". In the markets, nearly anything would be fine as long
as it didn't violate the law; I can't see that a puppet show would have
been a problem.

Avete Tribunes et Omnes,

Its unfortunate that we do not have a resolution to this issue. Maybe if there is another run-off you might want to try to include some voter reform on the next summons of the Comitia Plebis Tributa to say...drop off the lowest candidate and remove the write-in portions as options during run-off elections?

Here below are the results of the fifth runoff elections (May 4th to 11th 2003) given to me by the rogatores. No candidate won 18 tribes. Therefore we still have no fifth Tribune.

Tribes Won (Uncontested)

Gaius Geminius Germanus: 1 Tribe
Gaius Modius Athanasius: 11 Tribes
Gaius Popillius Laenas: 11 Tribes
Marianus Adrianus Sarus (Write-In): 1 Tribe

Count with Ties Resolved

Gaius Modius Athanasius: 13 Tribes

Salvete Luci et Luci,

Maybe a little reform should be in order as Sulla suggests. My
question at this point is that after another run off election,
whoever gets in is only going to be Tribune for 6 months or less. Is
6 months or less enough time to be worth while to the new Tribune or
NR? That is a lot of valuable productivity as well as learning lost.

Ave!

There are a few laws that might have an impact on this. For example, the Lex Gryllia de Securandis Magistratus Plebis might have to be implemented or at least looked into (http://www.novaroma.org/tabularium/leges/1999-11-14-i.html) and there are a number of other laws that might need to be looked into as well.

What is a foreigner?
For citizens of the cities located in the provinces, they were usually
rewarded with the Roman citizenship after being Duovir in their local
city.
This brought an extra burden on the remainder of the citizens of their
local city since Roman citizens were exempted of the tribute, and the
tribute was collected on a per city base.
We have many letters to the Flavian Emperors (end of 1st cent.) from the
hispanian cities which ask not to give roman citizenship anymore to
their duovirs, which leads to suppose that this was in effect fpr
sometime at the end of the 1st century.

Claudius introduced many Gauls in the senate (Lugdunum speech) which
leads us to conclude that this gauls were already citizens before that.

Non-citizens had the right of property in Rome.

I don' t know for the area purchasing.

Praenomen and Cognomen have no connotations you are free to choose them
(with the limitation of being latin names)
the Nomen will put you in a family, so choose wisely your pater

agreement.

Avete Q. Lanius et Omnes,

Who knows what might eventually happen. However, the law I quoted was just one of many that will definitely need to be discussed by the Tribunes themselves and eventually by the Senate if it ends up going that route.

Having the Senate get involved in determining who is to become a Tribune of the Plebs is a very serious course of action to follow. I do not believe the ancients would have ever used that remedy given the inherent conflict and checks/balances that the Tribunate was supposed to serve. This type of precedent should be very carefully thought-out before a course of action is adopted.

On a more personal level, I just hope that if there is another election for Tribune of the Plebs it will coincide with substantial election reform that can be voted on by the Plebs so that we wont have to encounter this type of situation again.

Respectfully,

Lucius Cornelius Sulla Felix
