SENATUS CONSULTUM ULTIMUM DE VIGINTISEXVIRIS
Enacted on: Prid. Kal. Ian. Sex. Lucilio C. Claudio P. Annaeo Q. Catulo tr. mil. cos. pot. ‡ XX ANRC et MMDCCLXX AUC (In the year of the Consular Tribunes Sex. Lucilius, C. Claudius, P. Annaeus and Q. Catulus, 31st December, 20 ANRC / 2770 AUC / 2017 AD)
I. In order that the republic suffer no harm, the election and office of vigintisexviri (Diribitor, Editor Commentariorum and Magister Aranearius) is hereby suspended until further notice. These offices can be filled at the discretion of the senate by appointment through senatus consultum ultimum. The office of diribitor can be filled by a simple edictum of the magistrate who holds the elections.
II. The category of the vigintisexviri shall be reformed and be brought in compliance with the Roman model. This reform shall be completed during the next consular year.
III. The senate can, by senatus consultum ultimum, appoint officers who attend the duties of the Magister Aranearius or Editor Commentariorum, but these offices shall have a different name, which is more alike to Roman office titles, vetted by a Latinist.
