The Fasti

June 3, 2004

For those not in the know (i.e. everyone), the fasti are lists of the magistrates of the Roman Republic. By these we know who held office when.

Unfortunately, for my far more detailed needs, knowing the two consuls and maybe a praetor or two is not enough. I need to know who held every office imaginable, so I can use that to keep track of alliances, changes in the relative power of rival families, and the like.

Such information is available, but on a name-by-name basis only. There is no annual, fasti-style table to keep track of everything.

So I am building one. Every year from 222-201 B.C., including everything from the consuls to the priesthoods. I’ll probably post it up on here when all is said and done. If you are reading along, however, be warned, even the list of magistrates year-by-year can be one hell of a spoiler for things to come.
