LEX ARMINIA DE MINISTRIS TRIBVNORVM
This law is intended to bring the concept of assistants for the tribunes
closer to the ancient custom.
- All apparitores nominated by a tribunus plebis for his assistance
shall therefore be called "viatores."
- A viator shall be nominated by an edictum, and must be a plebeian
- The viator is only an apparitor [assistant], and does not share
any of the special powers of a tribune, as specified in other legislation,
nor may the tribune delegate these powers to these assistants. However,
the viator may be delegated to execute the orders of a tribune within
his tribunicia potestas.
Passed by Comitia Plebis Tributa, Yes-20; No-5; Abstain-10
