Provincia Ohio (Nova Roma)
The Provincia was organized and created by order of the Senate of Nova Roma on a.d. IX Kal. Nov. 2766 a.u.c. (Oct. 24, 2013) and is one of the numerous Provinciae of Nova Roma, each of which has its own governor and organizes its own events and activities.
Nova Roma has much to offer to all those interested in the many facets of Ancient Rome. We have many associations known as Sodalitates which are dedicated to studying a wide range of topics, including but not limited to the Roman military, the Latin Language, and various cultural arts. Provinces hold events to promote membership and encourage participation. Nova Roma is diverse enough to accommodate almost any field of interest in Ancient Rome, including the Religio Romana.
For administrative purposes, the provincia is also divided into Regiones, geographically corresponding to modern political districts, each of which is assigned a Legate, who deals with the day-to-day running of his or her Regio.
The Provincia is administered by a Governor appointed by the Senate of Nova Roma. The Governor has the power of imperium and can issue edicts (laws on the provincial level). The Governor can also appoint Legati and Scribae. All of these have different titles (see the Cohors Propraetoris).
The Provincia is not a self-governing entity, rather it is managed by the Governor who acts according to the will of the Senate of Nova Roma.
