Enacted on: a.d. VIII Id. Oct. Q. Arrio P. Annaeo cos. ‡ XXII ANRC et MMDCCLXXII AUC (In the year of the consulship of Q. Arrius and P. Annaeus, 13rd April, 22 ANRC / 2772 AUC / 2019 AD)
I. With a few exceptions noted below, all current governors' mandates are hereby prorogued. In place of the late Cn. Cornelius Lentulus Alexander, proconsul cum maiore imperio, his deputy the quaestor and legatus Cn. Cornelius Lentulus Minor will continue in all provinces without governor in the capacity of quaestor pro praetore (a special title - with historical precedents - which denotes this office as strictly temporary), and he is appointed dux for the Dioecesis Europae Celticae et Germanicae. This is only an interim solution and each of these provinces are receiving governor candidates who should be appointed lieutenant governors, and, if they prove themselves to be active organizers, should be appointed full governors of the province.
II. Among the prorogued governors some receive renamed and differently composed provinces: A. Iulius Paterculus shall be the legatus pro praetore of the reunited Provincia Nova Britannia, T. Domitius Draco the consul governing Provincia America Noveboracensis et Mediatlantica, C. Tullius Valerianus Germanicus proconsul of Provincia America Hispanica, C. Claudius Quadratus proconsul of Provincia Canada.
III. For Provincia Australia, the senate appoints D. Aurelius Ingeniarius as legatus pro praetore, with commendation for his outstanding and exceptional work implemented for the reorganization of Provincia Australia, and for the recruitment of an allied legion, under the auspices of the recently departed proconsul Cn. Cornelius Lentulus Alexander and the legatus pro praetore of Australia, M. Claudius Nero.
IV. For Provincia Marcomannia, the senate appoints Ti. Iulius Nerva as legatus pro praetore, who has now completed his provincial report which was due for the last Kalends of September, and thus he satisfied the requirements of appointment set by senatus consultum de provincia Marcomannia populi Novi Romani.
V. For Provincia Cismississippiana, the senate appoints praetrix M. Hortensia Maior Fabiana Faustina to govern the province.
VI. For Provincia Sarmatia, the senate appoints praetor T. Flavius Severus to govern the province.
VII. For Provincia Germania, the senate appoints C. Artorius Praeconinus as legatus to Cn. Cornelius Lentulus dux dioecesis et legatus pro praetore to start the reorganization of the province under the supervision and with the help of dux et legatus pro praetore Cn. Lentulus. Legatus C. Artorius shall work under the guidance and supervision of the dux and legatus pro praetore, but C. Artorius reports not only to the governor but also directly to the Senate about his activities and developments in his area. Oath of office is required.
VIII. For Regio Noveboracensis in Provincia America Noveboracensis et Mediatlantica, the senate appoints M. Larcius Parrus as legatus to consul T. Domitius Draco to start the reorganization of the territory, and to establish an authentic, reconstructed Roman military camp, meeting serious reenactment and museum standards of reconstruction, under the supervision and with the help of consul T. Domitius. Legatus M. Larcius shall work under the guidance and supervision of the consul, but M. Larcius reports not only to the governor but also directly to the Senate about his activities and developments in his area. Oath of office is required.
IX. As the crisis of the bellum civile is coming to an end, the senate hereby terminates all special greater imperium (imperium maius) grants, and returns to normal practice. The special administrative state command and ceremonial field command, as described in the SENATUS CONSULTUM ULTIMUM ON THE CONTINUED OPERATION OF THE RES PUBLICA DURING THE CRISIS V, which was created for the organization of the defense of Nova Roma during the bellum civile of the coup, remains in force as long as the state of emergency and the bellum civile is not officially ended, and, in the form as it was granted to the late Cn. Cornelius Lentulus Alexander proconsul, is hereby transmitted to Cn. Cornelius Lentulus the Younger dux, quaestor et legatus pro praetore in those provinces where he is the governor (thus having supreme administrative-ceremonial command over the legio XXI Rapax, the cohors VI Carpathica, the cohors I Atilia and all other legions whose status and loyalty is not clarified yet), and in all other provinces, to Sex. Lucilius Tutor alongside with complete consular imperium and the title proconsul, with the exception of Provincia America Noveboracensis et Mediatlantica, where consul T. Domitius Draco shall continue to exercise this special bellum civile command (and thus administrative-ceremonial command over the legio XXIV Media Atlantia).
