Appointment of Four Domini Factionum
Ex Officio Curile Aedile Caeso Fabius Q.
Edictum Aedilicium XI about the appointment of four Domini Factionum
During my two first Ludi my Cohors Aedilis have developed the four
historical organizations (teams) in the Ludi Circenses that are
called Factiones: Russata, Praesina, Veneta and Albata. We have now
found that it would be good to have a Dominus Factionis (Team leader)
for each of these.
- Each Factio shall have a Dominus Factionis. The Dominus Factionis
will have the following tasks:
- To manage the advertising of his/her Factio on the Nova Roma main
list (firstname.lastname@example.org) and use the web page of the Factio (a
page on the Cohors Aedilis (Caeso Fabius Q.) web-site or a web-site
of their own organized by the Factio itself as agreed with Quaestor
Aedilis C. Fabius Quintilianus Illustrus Franciscus Apulus Caesar)
- To enlist new Chariot-owners (members) for his/her Factio
- To organize chats, meetings and everything needed to improve the
activities in his/her Factio.
- To keep keeping the spirit of the Ludi Circenses alive until the
end of 2755.
- To be the chief and foremost representative of his Factio behaving
with proper Romanitas, supervised by the Senior Curule Aedile
- The Dominus Factionis for each Factio will be appointed among
those citizens who have competed in the Ludi Circenses in Ludi
Megalesia and Ludi Florales. He/She will have to announce their
candidacy for the position of Dominus Factionis for their Factio on
the Nova Roma main list (email@example.com) to become the
Dominus Factionis for the Factio that they have competed for during
- The following citizens will automatically be appointed Dominus
Factionis based on their standing (points) within their Factio if no
other candidates announce themselves. Otherwise these four candidates
will be treated as candidates that have announced themselves publicly
on the Nova Roma main list, each for his Factio.
When there are more than one candidate for the position as
Dominus Factionis, I, the Senior Curule Aedile will ask Juppiter
Optimus Maximus for guidance and toss the dice. This way divine
fortune will decide who will become Dominus Factionis for each Factio.
If no candidate will announce themselves on the Nova Roma main
list and the candidate published in III. in this Edictum will not
accept the position as Dominus Factionis, the Senior Curule Aedile
will appoint one citizen Dominus Factionis for each such Factio based
on the Team standings (points).
To build a more stabile organization of the Domini Factionum in
the future, the Cohors Aedilis (Caeso Fabius Q.) will organize an
election for a new "Dominus Factionis" for each Factio to
serve for the whole of the next year (2756) in November 2755, well before the
This edictum becomes effective immediately.
- Russata: Honorable Marcus Minicius Rufus
- Praesina: Honorable Caius Curius Saturninus
- Veneta: Honorable Gaius Cornelius Ahenobarbus
- Albata: Honorable Marcus Octavius Solaris
Given May the 18th, in the year of the consulship of Marcus Octavius Germanicus and Lucius Cornelius Sulla Felix, 2755 AUC.
