Aedilitas curulis MMDCCLXI
This year 2761 auc is a special year : Rome has been re-founded ten years ago through our organization, Nova Roma.
In order to celebrate this special event, we are glad to present, below, a special program.
You will naturally find in it, underlined, our traditional games, which are celebrated every year by the aediles curules: the Megalenses (April) and the Romani (September).
But you will also find several exceptional games, that we have grouped in the global name of "Ludi Decennales", or "Games of the tenth birthday". Besides both traditional games, the Decennalia will be celebrated all along the year and in relation with traditional Roman (religious) festivals, from February Lupercales to December Opalia.
The other curule aedilician fields of intervention
1/ General aediles competencies
2/ Specific curule competencies
Aed. P. Memmius (abbreviation below PMA) has agreed with the wish expressed by Aed. Sex. Lucilius (abbr. below SLT) to join both aedilician teams in one cohors. The composition of the Cohors aedilicia (aediles's team) is the following:
The edicta are general or individual rules of law that, inside Nova Roma republic as in the ancient one, that the aediles, as nearly every magistrate, are allowed issue. These rules provide enforcement, apply, and complete the general rules issued by the Constitution of Nova Roma, by laws, made by the People or the Plebs in their comitia (assemblies), or by senatus consulta, decrees issued by the Senate of Nova Roma.
These edicta cannot be issued outside the fields of competency defined by the Constitution, in its paragraph IV, A, 4, and reminded above.
The current aedilician edicta are classed by number ("nb" in 2nd column, left). Except an extraordinary case, the higher is the number, the later is the issuing day. The head abbreviation designates the aedilis who has issued it ("SLT" for Sex. Lucilius Tutor and "PMA" for P. Memmius Albucius). The "Forum ref msg" is the number of the original message posted in the Forum Romanum (Yahoo! "Main List"). In the first column you may check the status of the edictum : in force ("Val.") or lapsed. A lapsed edict has either be withdrawn by the issuer or her/his successor, either been replaced by another one, or, at last, vetoed ("VETO") by a higher magistrate (for ex. a consul : "COS") or by a tribune of the plebs ("TB"). The cause is precised in every case.
