Oath of Apparitores

Ex Officio Consulis Senioris Caesonis Fabii Quintiliani

Edictum Consulare CFQ III de Iusiurando Apparitorium (The Third Consular Edict Concerning the Oath of Attendants/Apparitores)

There have been a discussion about oaths in Nova Roma that has convinced me that there is a need for a separate oath for Appiatores, as I do think that their positions certainly are serious, important and needed in their own way. It is my intention that this oath should be sworn by every Appiator in Nova Roma and that also other more informal "officials" could be required to swear this oath. I end by thanking Illustrus Decius Iunius Palladius, who provided me with the major part of this oath and my colleague Illusrtus Titus Labienus Fortunatus who supported me in this work.
