Flamen Portunus - Marcus Arcadius Pius
On behalf of the Collegium Pontificum, it is my pleasure to announce that Marcus Arcadius Pius has been approved as the new Flamen Portunus within Nova Roma.
The Flamen Portunus was the chief priest of Portunus, a god associated with harbors whos center of worship was in the Tiber harbor. (The Temple to Portunus at the head of the Pons Aemilius is one of the best preserved temples in Rome.)
Marcus Arcadius Pius will no doubt do well in developing this aspect of the Religio Romana. I hope that all of Nova Roma will join me in welcoming him into his new position as Flamen!
Valete, Marcus Cassius Julianus
