This is the first time in Nova Roma that the quaestores have fulfilled their historical Roman duty to administer the oaths of office of all other magistrates: The reason why they were the first magistrates to enter office, on the Nones of December in ancient Rome; and now, as of St. Cornelia C. Aemilio cos. MMDCCLXVII a.u.c., in Nova Roma as well.

It was a Roman tradition that quaestores were the first magistrates to enter office on December 5th, because they were tasked to ensure all other magistrates who would enter office after them would take the oath of office. The quaestores had to prepare the ceremony; to witness and verify the oaths.

The following report, made by the quaestores Cn. Lentulus and Ti. Cassius, is the official record of each oath of office as it was given:
