of Egnatius Reparatus

TNMP 103

Egnatius Reparatus, besides being sacerdos legitimus, is also collator de sestertiis V milibus nummum offered by nine leones. Everyone contributes to the making of the leonteum, with statue and accessories, consummati, perfected (rather than simply consecrated) by Egnatius Reparatus himself, clearly their spiritual guide.

Egnatius, probably reparatus thanks to the spiritual iter undertaken, does nothing that has not been allowed by the public authorities first (the decurions); and con- sequently the place of worship is created ex permissu sanctissimi ordinis.
