Lex Arminia de ministris tribunorum (Nova Roma)
This lex is currently IN FORCE.
This law is intended to bring the concept of assistants for the tribunes closer to the ancient custom.
- 1. All apparitores nominated by a tribunus plebis for his assistance shall therefore be called "viatores."
- 2. A viator shall be nominated by an edictum, and must be a plebeian citizen.
- 3. The viator is only an apparitor [assistant], and does not share any of the special powers of a tribune, as specified in other legislation, nor may the tribune delegate these powers to these assistants. However, the viator may be delegated to execute the orders of a tribune within his tribunicia potestas.
