Election MMDCCLXI (Nova Roma)/Gaius Petronius Dexter
|Gaius Petronius Dexter
C. Petronius Quiritibus s.p.d.,
I hereby announce my candidacy for position of quaestor. So, drapped in my candida toga, I, Gaius Petronius Dexter, submit to your suffrages my candidacy for the position of quaestor.
I am citizen of Nova Roma since a.d. V Kal. Dec. ‡, L. Arminio Ti. Galerio cos. ‡ MMDCCLX a.u.c., member of the Plebeian Order, and assiduus since this year, M. Moravio T. Iulio coss.( MMDCCLXI a.U.c).
My aim in this position of quaestor will be to do a good work with a senior magistrate in the greatest interest of Nova Roma.
I have translated in Latin the page of the Declaration and the page of the Sodalitates. And in French all the pages about the Roman names and some pages about the cultus deorum. More funny, I participated at the Ludi Romani with various sorts, but with a great enthusiasm.
Now, new flamen Portunalis, I wrote in French, for the moment, a page in honour of Portunus.  and thence the God Portunus is not yet forgotten in Nova Roma.
I hope he will smile to my candidacy.
Citizens, I ask you to vote for me as quaestor in the next elections.
C. Petronius Dexter
