Curule Aedile (2)


Quaestor (8)

There are eight quaestores elected annually to serve as aides and financial administrators to the consules, praetores, and aediles. After eight quaestores have been elected, the newly elected senior magistrates are consulted and asked which of the new quaestores they wish to have assigned to them. The new consules make the final determination of this, publishing an edict assigning quaestores to senior magistrates.

To stand for election as quaestor, a potential candidate is required to be at least 21 years old, must be assiduus, must have been a citizen of Nova Roma for at least one year, and must have previously held the position of an apparitor for at least six months of service.[1]


Rogator (2)

The two rogatores are magistrates of Nova Roma. The rogators work closely with the censors to process citizen applications, check eligibility, and ensure that voters have voter codes and are properly assigned to centuries and tribes.


Diribitor (4)

The four diribitors (Lat. diribitores) are magistrates of Nova Roma who are responsible for counting votes; when they have cross-checked each other, they turn their tallies over to the custodes. Because of their involvement in elections, diribitors cannot run for any office for which they would be counting the votes. In antiquity the diribitors were typically young men who had just completed their military service. The office of diribitor is a traditional first step toward the cursus honorum.

Custos (2)

The two custodes take the raw vote tallies compiled by the diribitors and convert them to a tally of tribes and centuries which they then certify to the convening magistrates of elections. The Latin word "custos" means "guard" or "watcher": in antiquity it was typical for very senior people such as senators and consulars to serve as custodes. Because of their involvement in the elections, custodes can not run for any office for which they would be certifying the election results.

Tribunus Plebis (5)

The Constitution of Nova Roma provides that there shall be five tribuni plebis (Tribunes of the Plebs), who shall be elected by the comitia plebis tributa, and who shall all be of the plebeian order.

Candidates for tribunus plebis must be citizens in good standing, for at least six full months before taking office, of the plebeian order, assidui, and at least 25 years of age by the date of taking office.
