Provincia America Austrorientalis - Praetorium (Nova Roma)
The Praetorium is the office of the propraetor, or governor, of a Nova Roman province. The current Provincial Praetorium is located in Ala Provinciorum I (Brunson, S.C) Carolina (NC/SC), Provincia America Austrorientalis, America Septentrionalis. The Propraetor America Austrorientalis is assisted by a staff like that of a present day government.
The staff personnel of the Praetorium, Cohors Propraetoris, handle areas like the treasury, the military, interprovincial relations, and public games and gatherings. The Cohors Propraetoris consists of all the assistants (legati and scribae) of the Propraetor America Austrorientalis.
All members (Legati and Consiliari) of the Consilium Provincia are part of the inner circle of the Cohors Propraetoris. All other officials appointed by the Propraetor are parts of the outer circle of the Cohors Propraetoris. This does not mean that they lack in importance. On the contrary, they each have an important field of responsibility.
The whole Cohors Propraetoris is the modern equivalent of the followers of the provincial Governor of Roma Antiqua. The Propraetor's retinue was in many respects a military one; they all acted in a foreign country that could be hostile. We will also act in a non-Roman country, but let's hope that it isn't a hostile one ;-)
As the governors of the old days, the Propraetor expects a certain loyalty, discipline and unity from the Cohors Propraetoris. The members of the Consilium Provincia should, as a kind of General's staff, set an example in this and all Roman behavior to the rest of the Cohors Propraetoris.
