Non. Oct. Cn. Salice Cn. Equitio cos. MMDCCLVII a.u.c.

I.A. Nova Roman citizenship begins at the instant a pater or materfamilias recognizes a person as a member of his or her Nova Roman familia and informs the appropriate Nova Roman magistrates in charge of citizen registration of this recognition.
B. In the case of newly-created familiae whose patres or matresfamiliarum are new citizens receiving citizenship at the same time as the familiae are being formed and registered, citizenship begins with the approval of the Censors.
II. Beginning Kalendis Ianuarias, MMDCCLVIII, all new citizens of Nova Roma shall be subject to a probationary period of at least 90 days, during which they will not be allowed the 'iura publica', the right to vote and to stand for any public office.
III.A. The probationary period will end when 90 days have passed and the new citizen has taken and passed a simple examination covering elementary matters of Nova Roman citizenship and basic Roman history, religion, language, and social practices.
B. This examination shall be made available, upon request of the applicant, in any of the languages for which Nova Roma has qualified translators.
C. The examination will be developed by the Censors or such other magistrates as the Censors may designate, and shall be reviewed annually by the Senate.
D. The examination will be graded by the Censors or by such other persons as may be directed by law.
IV.A. These requirements may be wholly or partially waived by the Senate in exceptional circumstances.
B. Examples of such exceptions would include, but not be limited to:
1. Applicants who have been peregrine citizens of a municipium or oppidum for 6 months.
2. Applicants who are peregrine citizens of municipia or oppida who have been elected to an elective office such as duumvir or aedilis.
3. Applicants sponsored by a curule magistrate, including provincial governors.
4. Applicants with exceptional academic and professional qualifications.
V.A. Minor citizens who join Nova Roma after Kalendis Ianuarias, MMDCCLVIII and who have not yet reached 18 years of age may take the examination up to 90 days before their 18th birthday.
B. Taking and passing the examination early will not entitle them to vote or stand for office before their 18th birthday.


I. A. Vt pater aut materfamilias personam gentilem tollat et magistratus proprios quibus praestat cives in album referre de hac approbatione certiores faciat, civitas Novae Romae ilico coepit.

B. Ad familias nuper creatas quarum patres vel matresfamiliarum cives novi sunt, civitatem simul recipientes ac familias constituentes in album referentesque, censoribus probantibus civitas incipit.

II. A Kalendis Ianuariis MMDCCLVIII, omnes cives novi Novae Romae tirocinio ut minimum nonaginta dierum subicientur, per quod eis iura publica non licebit; nec suffragium ferant, nec aliquem honorem publicum petant.

III. A. Post nonaginta dies, cum civis novus periculum probationis simplicis de rebus magni momenti civitati Novae Romae, rudimentisque historiae, religionis, linguae, consuetudinum civiliumque Romanorum subeat et approbetur, tirocinium conficiet.

B. Petitore roganti, haec probatio in promptu erit versa in omnes linguas quibus interpretes periti Novae Romae adsunt.

C. Probatio a censoribus vel magistratibus aliis designatis a censoribus excoletur, et quotannis a Senatu recensebitur.

D. Exercitia a censoribus vel talibus aliis e lege praescriptis notabitur.

IV. A. In rebus raris, haec necessaria omnino vel partim a Senatu remittentur.

B. Nullo pacto circumscribantur; exempla immunitatum talium autem includant:

1. Petitores qui cives peregrini municipi vel oppidi sex menses fuerunt.

2. Petitores qui cives peregrini municipi vel oppidi qui duumviri, aediles, vel magistratus suffragiis creati delecti sunt.

3. Petitores a magistratu curuli provinciae praesidenteve commendantur.

4. Petitores qui potestates raras academicas professionisve habent.

V. A. Civibus impuberibus qui post Kalendas Ianuarias MMDCCLVIII participes Novae Romae erunt et qui nondum duodeviginti annos nati sunt periculum probationis subeant usque ad nonaginta dies ante diem natale duodevicesimum suum licet.

B. Periculo probationis praemature subeundo et superando non liceat suffragia ferant aut honores petant ante diem natalem suum duodevicesimum.
