Salvete omnes!

Today is a special day for me. I am member of Nova Roma already for 10 years (although 11 months in tironicium).
Really fast period. My big thanks to my province fellow and senator Sextus Lucilius Tutor. Only thanks to him I can be here.
I still remember how we together filled online citizenship application.

I am really glad that I met Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus, really devoted Roman, we are the same souls.

Nova Roma is rising. We have the most productive era which I remember. And I am really glad that
I am a part of it.

My first decade is gone, but just in these moments I am able focus on Nova Roma fully

LUDI CORNELII | Official Closing of the Ludi Cornelii

M. Caecilius Metellus Tocaiensis, aedilis plebis
 

M. Metellus Tocaiensis aedilis SPD

We dedicated a full month to the memory of Cn. Cornelius Lentulus Alexander who was taken away from us when he was serving as censor and proconsul to restore the provinces of Nova Roma. Those who knew him personally will know that the honors are well deserved. I am among the people who knew him personally and I even knew him many years before Nova Roma was founded. We had our land parcels near to each other and we often met in the bus or elsewhere in the city of Szolnok. I admired his stamina, energy, youth and character over the many years I knew him, and when he was over 90, he still seamed just 70 in physics and mind. No wonder he was able to undertake those tasks Nova Roma entrusted to him! No wonder he was a worthy citizen to receive the honor to have the imperium and the auspices as symbolic sacrificial "king", to hold the completion of the founding of Nova Roma ceremony for the consecration of our Palladium and Pignora Imperii, relics to carry the soul of the reborn Roman nation.

I remember when we met in the bus and discussed our sons, both Nova Roman citizens, my Cyprianus and his Lentulus the Younger, how they cope with the university, how they cope with life! They are now full adults, and we are now losing the eldest generation of Nova Romans, one by one. This was our third State Funeral in a few years!

As commanding officer of the Legio XXI Rapax, I specially salute my commander in chief, proconsul and imperator Cn. Lentulus Alexander, giving my final goodbye.

I lost my mother, too, shortly before the death of Lentulus Alexander. 2020 was a tough year to many of us, the toughest! Let's hope with this year 2021 we leave these sad times behind us! Not losing more old friends, but gaining new ones! Not cancelling our Roman events, but holding more ones!

Lentulus Alexander, our fourth pater patriae honored so, is an example for all of to imitate! To work until the end, to hope until the very end, to live for others, to live to serve and to be of help. He was humble, quiet, diligent and helpful until his last breath. 

I am saluting him, and I am saying goodbye to him. 

I am thanking you who participated in the Ludi Cornelii to salute Lentulus Alexander together with us the aediles, and with his grieving family, and the grieving senate. Thanks for visiting our Ludi Cornelii page, to review the various programs we held in his honor, and in the glory of Nova Roma:


Two activities remain open for indefinite time. The "Photo Tributes to Lentulus Alexander from Around the World", and you can still send to the aediles or to the website editors your photos if you decide so:

http://www.novaroma.org/nr/Ludi_Cornelii_-_Photo_Tributes_to_Lentulus_Alexander_from_Around_the_World

And the Memorial Page collecting your verbal tributes, farewells, condolences and remarks on the death of Lentulus Alexander, here:

http://www.novaroma.org/nr/In_memory_of_Cn._Cornelius_Lentulus_Alexander

You can still send your condolences or tributes to the aediles or the website editors as long as the pages will exist.

One program of the Ludi Cornelii is postponed to a later time (bust within a couple of days or weeks), the fiull presentation of photos and a little movie on the Funus Censorium Censorial State Funeral of Cn. Cornelius Lentulus Alexander. His son Lentulus is not ready with the editing, but he will make the presentation in the near future.

Now it is time to say goodbye. Fare well, Lentulus Alexander, our father, pater patriae! Protect us and help us from the gods' realm!

With these words, I am now officially closing the Ludi Cornelii. 

Vale, Lentule Alexander!

Long live his memory, and eternal happiness and life to him in the Elysian Fields!

Thank you to all who participated to honour Cn. Cornelius Lentulus

recognition.
To those who are interested, here is the quiz answer key, including
references used:

legion? In what year did this take place and what tribe was he
fighting at the time? (9 points)

4. Under what Roman leader and in what year did the conquest of
Pannonia begin? When did it end? (9 points)

members of the imperial family engineered their defeat? What steps did

emperors was killed. When did this take place? (exact date) How was
Pannonia impacted? (9 points)
A. Emperor Valens died at the battle of Adrianople on August 9, 378 (8

M. Caecilius Metellus Tocaiensis aedilis SPD

I am happy to announce the WINNER and the RESULTS of the Certamen Szolnokinense, the contest about the home town of our late Cn. Cornelius Lentulus Alexander pater patriae who died while serving Nova Roma as censor and supreme proconsul, imperator. He also served us a consul, senator and in his name was completed the founding of Nova Roma in our 20th year. He deserved rich commemorations and I hope we could give this to him, and also to his son, who stood behind him in his every action. His home town, Szolnok, pronounce as "sol-nok", was outside the ancient Roman imperium but near to it, and many Roman remains were found, and it had a rich ancient Roman connection. There was plenty to celebrate about his town for us, Nova Romans.

The result of the Certamen Szolnokinense is the following:

WINNER: C. Claudius Barbatus, with 15 points (5 + 15 extras). His prize is 3 Census Points! Congratulations!

SECOND PLACE: A. Scribonius Nasica, with 9 points (5 + 4 extras) His prize is 2 Census Points. Congratulations!

THIRD PLACE: D. Fabricius Avitus, with 5 points (4 + 1 extras) His prize is 1 Census Point. Congratulations!

Thanks for all who participated but didn't land in a prized place!

Thanks to the late Lentulus Alexander for all of his service to Nova Roma!

We will always honor his memory!

Requiescat in Pace! Glory to his eternal soul!

I have used the analogy of the revitalization of Nova Roma after the events of the dictatorship being compared to the regrowth of a forest after powerful fire.  Once the last grip on power was released, almost immediately, sprouts began to appear, occasional flowers among the blackened stumps representing the renewal of our res publica.

With this senate session, the saplings are now taller than a man, and blooms now carpet the forest floor.  There is life, renewal, and romanitas throughout the land.

Gratias Tibi Ago.

Fellow senators, and citizens of the Nova Roman people!   Please find the results of the July Senate session below.  Item IV is an update on Item VII from the last session, with some clarifications.  The process of legislation does require compromise, so in the course of our discussions, some changes have been made.

CONSULAR OPENING AND CLOSING CEREMONY:

The Senate session was ritually opened and closed by a sacrificial ceremony by pontifex Cn. Cornelius Lentulus, on behalf of consul A. Tullia Scholastica.

 
QUORUM:
 
The Senate of Nova Roma currently has 16 voting members which gives a minimum quorum of 11 voting members. With 15 senate members present and with 1 present through proxy, the QUORUM IS ACHIEVED.
 
Proxy  - Gaius Petronius Dexter is on Leave - his Proxy is assigned to Sextus Lucilius Tutor - therefore, as per XI.J of the SENATUS CONSULTUM DE RATIONE SENATUS MMDCCLXV, he is deemed present.

ITEM III:  REINSTATING THE TIROCINIUM (PROBATIONARY PERIOD) OF NEW CITIZENS.

 

 

SENATUS CONSULTUM ON THE REINSTATEMENT OF THE LEX EQUITIA DE TIROCINIO CIVIUM NOVORUM

 

Preamble

 

         The Lex Equitia de tirocinio civium novorum was previously approved by the Comitia Populi Tributa on Non. Oct. ‡ Cn. Salvio Cn. Equitio cos. ‡ MMDCCLVII a.u.c. This law provided a simple measure to aid the development of our new and younger citizens.  It raises the concept of a citizenship examination, not to inhibit newer citizens but to guide their understanding of Nova Roma and its society.  It provides an incentive for citizens to study and undertake basic reading of available assets before gaining ‘iura publica', the right to vote and to stand for any public office.  Recent forum activity over the last year has seen numerous instances of misconceptions of Nova Roma and newer citizens being unable to fully appreciate our society.  The need to provide a level of common knowledge has become apparent and is currently placing increased workloads across various active magistrates.

 

         I.  This Senatus consultum repeals “Senatus consultum on Waiving Law Requirements”, allowing Lex Equitia de tirocinio civium novorum to be reinstated to full effect. 

 

         II.  As this SCU revives the process under Lex Equitia de tirocinio civium novorum, effective on the Kalends of September, 2021, all new applicants for citizenship will now be subject to its legislation and be required to undertake an examination to complete a probationary period. Current new citizens who have an approved name but have not yet completed a 90-day period with Nova Roma are exempt.

 

         III.    In clarification of Part IV.A of the Lex Equitia de tirocinio civium novorum, the consuls and the Censorial Office both have the right to waive the requirement of the 90-day probationary period and the requirement of the Citizenship Test on an individual basis if they deem that an accelerated process or the waiving of these requirements in case of a person would bring more benefit to Nova Roma than the strict application of the procedure.

 

=====




ITEM IV:  MODIFICATION OF THE SENATE DECREE ON CONFLICT OF INTEREST POLICY

 

 

SENATUS CONSULTUM ULTIMUM DE PIETATE, FIDUCIA ET FIDELITATE PRINCIPUM CIVITATIS ERGA REM PUBLICAM REVISUM

 

Preamble

 

     As is common practice, Nova Roma is obligated to address and manage conflicts-of-interest. For the ongoing benefit of all citizens, it is in the best interest of the Republic to protect the infrastructure and financial assets from entities that could cause damage to our society and organization, either through error or violation. This senatus consultum ultimum seeks to consolidate and replace the numerous and often contradictory policies on managing conflicts-of-interest and competing organisations that have been passed previously.

 

    I. A. It is prohibited for any citizen of Nova Roma to run as a candidate for, or hold a high-ranking office, when any such citizen holds similar or comparable higher-ranking positions in another RomanByzantine, or Classical-era themed organization which conducts activities in the creation, development, and/or workings of a state or revivalism focus.  Reenactment legions, gladiatorial schools, and similar organizations which lack Roman-style government frameworks do not fall under this prohibition.

 

     B. 'A high-ranking official of Nova Roma' is defined as including the Senatorial order, provincial governor or any officer appointed by the Senate (unless specially appointed as a Nova Roman representative in another organization), vigintisexvir, quaestor, tribunus plebis, aedilis, censor, praetor, consul, and all corporate decision-making offices. The religious posts of the rex sacrorum, flamen, pontifex, augur, quindecimvir, epulo and Vestal are also considered prohibited positions to those Nova Roma citizens holding equivalent high-ranking offices in other organisations comparable to Nova Roma.

 

  II. Nova Roma welcomes and encourages citizens to hold membership or citizenship in other Roman orientated organizations. These citizens, holding membership in other Roman organizations, may still run for high-ranking offices within Nova Roma provided they are not in violation of part I above.  The Senate has evaluated the risk and accepts the potential ongoing ineligibility of a small number of citizens in exchange for the added security this policy provides. Citizens who hold high-ranking offices or corporate roles within organizations formally recognized by Nova Roma as a subsidiary, chapter, autonomous group, allied group, or friendly partner are permitted to hold a high-ranking office within Nova Roma.  Our pater patriae M. Cassius Iulianus is an exception from under these restrictions defined in part I.

 

     III. The Senate is permitted to suspend any high-ranking officials from the right to exercise their powers and duties if there is reasonable suspicion that there has been a violation of part I. Any individual under suspicion will be subject to an investigation by the praetors, or in case a praetor is suspected, the remaining praetor. In a case where both praetores are suspected of violation, the consules will conduct the investigation. If both consules are also suspected, then any inspection will be conducted by the aediles, with the tribuni plebis conducting investigations if the aediles are also under suspicion. If all tribuni plebis are also suspected, inspections by the quaestores will then occur. After any investigation with findings, the jurisdictional process can deem the final judgement of the accused individual(s). If they are found guilty though due process, he or she will be automatically removed from office.  Determined innocence through a judicial process or an inconclusive investigation immediately ends any suspension of office without further record in the subject citizens' acta.

 

   IV. This senatus consultum ultimum repeals the following senatus consulta and condemns the policies and attitudes behind them as an incorrect approach. These policies are not in the cordial spirit of Nova Roma in which we extend toward all Roman organizations in the world:

 

       A. Senatus consultum ultimum on competing organizations

       B. Senatus consultum on the "Res Publica Romana" as a competing organization

       C. Senatus consultum on the "romanrepublic.org" as a competing organization

       D. Senatus consultum on the reapplication process for citizenship

       E. Senatus consultum on conflicts of interest

 

 

========

 

 

ITEM V:  SENATUS CONSULTUM DE SODALITATUM RESTITUTIONE

 

Preamble

 

         Long has been the history and the use of sodalities in ancient Rome and by extension, Nova Roma. Several sodalitates, or associations, exist within Nova Roma for the discussion of topics of special interest to Nova Roma citizens. These sodalitates had mailing lists of their own, and at least one had a website, but Yahoo, the hosting company for the mailing lists, destroyed first the files and other content of these lists, then the lists themselves some time ago, so the members have had no way of communicating with their fellows since then.  Since not only could any citizen may be a member of several of the sodalitates, but also non-citizens could join and participate in the mailing lists of some as well, the latter in particular could not contact or be contacted by others of like interests. The Lex Cassia de creatione sodalitatum remains in force and effective at defining the creation of Sodalitates in Nova Roma though unfortunately, many sodalities relied on the now defunct Yahoo groups and issues under the illegal dictatorship saw many of these sodalitates become inactive.  We hope to revive the Sodalities with this legislation.

 

         I. This senatus consultum allows for the current existing and originally recognized sodalities to be formally reinstated, under temporary governance, to re-establish standard operations under their respective approved charters once those have been recovered. That for the Sodalitas Latinitatis has already been found and posted to this body, as have some others.  The process to establish new sodalitates remains unchanged as defined by Lex Cassia de creatione sodalitatum.

 

         II. The Senate hereby appoints the following individuals as points of contact for sodalitas members to lobby for the continued recognition of their respective sodalities.  These officers are to notify the citizens of Nova Roma of this initiative to revive the sodalities and seek to determine any existing membership. The Praetores may, through an edict, assign other eligible and knowledgeable citizens as support staff of members with responsibility for this initiative:

 

                  A. Sodalitas Coquorum et Cerevisiae Coctorum (A. Tullia Scholastica)

                  B. Sodalitas Egressus (Cn. Cornelius Lentulus)

                  C. Sodalitas Graeciae (A. Tullia Scholastica)

                  D. Sodalitas Latinitatis (A. Tullia Scholastica)

                  E. Sodalitas Militaris (Q. Arrius Nauta)  

                  F. Sodalitas Munerum (M. Aurelius Cotta Iovius)

                  G. Sodalitas Musarum (A. Tullia Scholastica).

                  E. Sodalitas Pro Diis (Cn. Cornelius Lentulus)

 

         III. Those citizens believing themselves to be representative as a knowledgeable member or previous officer of a sodalitas may present themselves and the necessary supporting documentation under Lex Cassia de creatione sodalitatum to any named former officer for assessment. Members and officers have until pr. Kal. Dec. to identify themselves and re-establish their sodalities. After this time any sodalities with insufficient membership, leadership or otherwise not meeting their charter will be dissolved by the Senate.

 

         IV. The Senate or the consules may, through an edict, appoint a temporary officer or magistrate for a sodalitas of those citizens they deem sufficient in re-establishing the sodalitas, and may create mailing lists for them even pending that.  Any temporary officer or magistrate appointed in this manner has until the time specified in part III to demonstrate to the Senate that the sodalitas meets and operates to the defined charter once those have been recovered. The Consuls are empowered to undertake this initial governance role of a sodalitas at their discretion.

 

========

 

 

ITEM VI:  DE REGIONE CENOMANIA PROVINCIAE NOVAE BRITANNIAE, DE PRAEFECTO CENOMANIAE ET DE LEGATO REGIONIS NOVEBORACENSIS ET DE CASTRIS VICISQUE AEDIFICANDIS

 

         I. M. Larcius Parrus was appointed for Regio Noveboracensis (the States of New York and US New Jersey), in America Noveboracensis, "to start the reorganization of the territory, and to establish an authentic, reconstructed Roman military camp, meeting serious reenactment and museum standards of reconstruction". The senate mandates proconsul T. Domitius Draco to advise the senate about the performance of legatus Regionis Noveboracensis M. Larcius Parrus, by the end of August, whether M. Larcius is working in his position or not, or if he is incapacitated only temporarily. After August, the senate shall decide on removal or keeping of M. Larcius as legatus for Regio Noveboracensis.

 

         II. The senate creates Regio Cenomania within Provincia Nova Britannia to cover the territory that is the State of Maine, USA. 

 

                  II.A. For Regio Cenomania, the senate appoints D. Marcius Vulpes as praefectus to legatus pro praetore A. Iulius Paterculus to represent Nova Roma as lieutenant governor (regional vice-president for Maine), and to establish an authentic, reconstructed Roman military camp, meeting serious reenactment and museum standards of reconstruction, under the supervision of legatus pro praetore A. Iulius Paterculus. 

 

                  II.B. Praefectus D. Marcius shall work under the guidance and supervision of the legatus pro praetore, but D. Marcius reports not only to the governor but also directly to the Senate about his activities and developments in his area. The Oath of office is required.

LUDI CORNELII | Live programs of the Ludi Cornelii before their official closing tomorrow: Cn. Lentulus the Younger, pontifex, in the name of the aediles, dedicated the programs held today in Aquincum to the Ludi Cornelii which are the funerary games in honor of the late censor, proconsul Cn. Lentulus Alexander, his pater familias. In the video below, you can a battle of Roman children vs Marcomannian children. Guess who won!

In the video below, you will see a playful demonstration of the Roman surveying instrument called groma:

https://www.facebook.com/novaroma.org/posts/10160122154531002

There was also a more serious battle between Roman and Marcomannian adults, opened by a prayer in which the battle reenactment was offered to the Di Manes of Lentulus Alexander within the frames of the Ludi Romani.

Nova Roma was represented by the Cohors VI Carpathica, the Cohors I Atilia, the Ludus Gladiatorum "Aquincum" and the burgus Colonia Rostallo.


Signs and omens of death according to Roman biographer tradition added to the Lentulus Alexander Memorial Page

M. Caecilius Metellus Tocaiensis, aedilis plebis
 

M. Metellus aedilis SPD

I don't know if you know, but Roman biographers, historians, when writing about a statesman's life and death, never missed to mention the signs and omens foretelling or accompanying his death, and any signs around the time of passing away, funeral and so on. It was part of narrating somebody's death for the ancient Romans.

Lentulus the Younger, the pontiff, called my attention that he collected and added to the Memorial Page of his pater familias those very interesting Roman omens and signs that accompanied the last times of censor Lentulus Alexander. It's interesting to read, and he also collected all tributes, farewells and condolence messages sent for Lentulus Alexander, photos about the modern and about the grandiose Roman state funeral, and everything.

Read the signs and omens concerning the passing of Cn. Cornelius Lentulus Alexander on his Memorial Page:


Scroll down to the CONTENTS and find "Signs and omens regarding the death of Cn. Cornelius Lentulus Alexander". Or you can access that section by clicking on the section link:


We have more than 80 tributes on the memorial page, and if you don't find yours, you can still send it to me, to any aedilis or Lentulus the Younger, and it will be displayed on the memorial page.

Please visit the page and look how Nova Roma keeps together when it is about honoring and remembering one of us.

CN. CORNELIVS LENTVLVS LEGATVS PRO PRAETORE DACIAE ET LACVVM MAGNORVM: QVIRITIBVS: SAL.:


I have conducted my investiture ceremony and taken the oaths of office for the governorship of Provincia Dacia and Provincia Lacus Magni. I will be a guest governor in these territories, a place holder, but I take it very seriously, and I will make sure that when I am stepping down there will be an active team in both provinces which will make these provinces live and functional. I already have some candidates for these teams. My job will be to resuscitate these dying provinces and to save them from the automatic dissolution which waits for any inactive province under the current, very wise and realistic, laws. Those provinces will be dissolve automatically, regardless to the senate's intention, where there is no Nova Roman activity.


MY OATH OF OFFICE AS LEGATUS PRO PRAETORE OF DACIA AND LEGATUS PRO PRAETORE OF LACUS MAGNI.
