LEX ARMINIA DE MINISTRIS PROVINCIALIBVS
This law applies to clarify a specific case in the Lex Arminia de Edictis.
- Due to the passing of Potestas et Imperium, when there is a change of
Propraetor or Proconsul in a province, all of his provincial apparitores (such as
Scribae, Legati, etc.) are automatically relieved from their duties. If the new
propraetor or proconsul desires to keep a previous apparitor, he must re-issue
an edictum nominating him or her.
- Confirming the Lex Arminia de Edictis, all provincial edicta are automatically
revoked when there is a change of propraetor or proconsul, and the new magistrate does not
confirm them in his Imperium.
- When the term of a Propraetor or Proconsul of a province is extended by the Senate,
there is no need to re-issue the edicta of the previous year; the same magistrate is the issuer.
