(1) : the original text is "in the Nova Roma and the Comitia Plebis Tributa fora". This writing let the reader think that the Comitia Plebis Tributa (CPT) fora is not in Nova Roma. Here, what was meant is referring to the Forum romanum aka "the main list". The word "fora", applied to the Comitia Plebis, has then been corrected in "forum/-a", to let the future open, though, currently, there is but one CPT forum.

Correction made by application of lex Equitia de corrigendum legum erratis and of legal principle "Qui potest majus potest et minus".

P. Memmius Albucius, praetor 2762 auc.
