Censores in Roma Antiqua

The censores were two in number, elected from men of consular dignity, at a interval of five years (lustrum) and holding office for eighteen months. They ranked as magistratus maiores, but did not possess the imperium, and had no power to convene either the senate or an assembly of the people.
