Senatus consultum on the appointment of Custodes and Assistants (Nova Roma)
SENATUS CONSULTUM ON THE APPOINTMENT OF CUSTODES AND ASSISTANTS
I. In recognition of the absence of candidates offering themselves for election for custos for this year, and as the provision at section V of the Lex Equitia de vigintisexviris appears concerned with filling a mid-term vacancy, the Senate appoints as custos, each to serve out the remainder of this year 2765 A.U.C.
1. Titus Iulius Sabinus
2. Quintus Caecilius Metellus Pius Postumianus
II. Titus Iulius Sabinus and Quintus Caecilius Metellus Pius Postumianus shall have all the honors, powers, and obligations of custos as II.D of the Lex Equitia de vigintisexviris, as though they had been elected to this position.
III. Titus Iulius Sabinus and Quintus Caecilius Metellus Pius Postumianus shall be required to take the oath of office as required by the lex Iunia de iusiurando.
IV. The Senate appoints Aulus Liburnius Hadrianus and Vibius Valerius Volusus to act as assistants to Titus Iulius Sabinus and Quintus Caecilius Metellus Pius Postumianus and to act as their deputy should one or both be unavailable at anytime during the course of any voting that requires use of the cista. No oath shall be required of them.
V. Should either of the assistants also be presiding magistrate of a comitia when a vote is being held, that assistant shall recuse themselves from the role of assistant and his position on the Nova Roman cista account at votingplace.net shall be filled by the other assistant.
VI. Other than in the circumstances at section V, the custodes shall decide which of the assistants is assigned to the cista account.
