    In the consulship of Lucius Ceionius Commodus and Sextus Vettulenus CivicaPompeianus, on June 9, at Lanuvium in the temple of Antinous, in which Lucius Caesennius Rufus, patron of the municipium, had ordered that a convention be held through Lucius Pompeius (…)us, quinquennalis of the worshipers of Diana and Antinous, he Caesennius Rufus promised that he would give to them in consequence of his liberality the interest on 15,000 sesterces: on the birth]day of Diana on August 13 400 sesterces and on the birthday of Antinous on November 27 400 sesterces. And he enjoined the lex established by them to be written out in full at the bottom of the tetrastylum of Antinous on the inner side so as to produce the words written below.In the consulship of Marcus Antonius Hiberus and Publius Mummius Sisenna, on January 1, the salutary collegium of Diana (…) and Antinous was established, when Lucius Caesennius Rufus son of Lucius, of the Quirine tribe, was dictator for the third time and also patron.Clause from the decree of the Senate of the Roman People: ‘These shall be permitted to (…), convene and have a collegium: those who wish to collect a monthly fee (…) may gather in this collegium; but (…) not (…) in the name of this collegium except once a month for the purpose of (…), from which they shall be buried after their demise’.May this be [avourable, propitious, happy and salutary to the Imperator Caesar Trajan Hadrian Augustus and to the entire domus Augusta, to us, to ours, and to our collegium; and may we have entered into an opportune and diligent agreement so that we may escort with honour the departure of the deceased. Therefore to collecting in a proper manner must we all agree, so that we may be able to continue in existence for a long time.You who want to enter this collegium as a new member, first read the lex in its entirety and enter in such a manner that later you may not make a complaint or leave a dispute to your heir.Lex of the collegium:It was agreed by all that whoever wants to enter this collegium shall give as apro capite fee 100 sesterces and an amphora of good wine, and likewise per month five asses (1.25 sesterces). Likewise, it was agreed that anyone who has not settled his account for six consecutive months and to whom the common lot of mankind befalls, he shall lose the money standing in his account for the funus, even if he has had a testament made.Likewise, it was agreed that whoever from our body has died with his account settled, 300 sesterces from the fund will accompany him, from which sum will be deducted, as the amount {25} spent at the obsequies, fifty sesterces, which will be distributed at the pyre. Furthermore, the obsequies will be performed on foot.Likewise, it was agreed that whoever has died more than twenty miles away from the municipium and his death has been reported, three people chosen from our body will be required to go there who shall take care of his funus, and they will be required to render an account to the populus not in bad faith, and if anything has been found by way of fraud they shall pay a quadruple fine.And they will be given his funeraticium, and in addition to that by way of a travel allowance to and fro twenty sesterces each. But if a member has died farther away, more than twenty miles from the municipium, and his death has been impossible to report, then he who has carried out his funus, once the tablets containing the testimonies] have been stamped with the seals of seven Roman citizens and the matter has been approved, shall claim for himself his funeraticium from the collegium, once security has been given that noone else is going to claim any more and the incidentals and the amount spent at the obsequies in accordance with the lex of the collegium have been deducted. Let no bad faith attend. And there shall be no claim from either patron or patroness, master or mistress, or creditor against this collegium unless one of them has been named heir in a testament. If anyone has died intestate, he will receive his funus at the discretion of the quinquennalis and the populus.Likewise, it was agreed that whoever from this collegium has died a slave, and his body unreasonably has not been released for burial by his master or mistress, and he has not left documents, a funus with an image will be held for him.Likewise, it was agreed that whoever for whatever reason has committed suicide, heshall have lost the money standing in his account for the funus.Likewise, it was agreed that whichever slave from this collegium has been made free, he will be required to give an amphora of good wine.Likewise, it was agreed that whoever shall be magister in his year in the order of the membership list for the preparation of dinners and fails to comply and prepare, he shall pay thirty sesterces into the fund; {10} the man next on the list after him will be required to give the dinner, and he will be required to reciprocate in the latter’s place.Sequence of dinners: March 8, on the birthday of Caesennius (…), the father; November 27, on the birthday of Antinous; August 13, on the birthday of Diana and the collegium; August 20, on the birthday of Caesennius Silvanus, the brother; September 12, on the birthday of Cornelia Procula, his mother; December 14, on the birthday of Caesennius Rufus, patron of the municipium.Magistri of the dinners made in the order of the membership list (…) four at a time, will be required to supply an amphora of good wine each, and bread to the value of two asses (0.5 sesterces) for however many members the collegium has, four sardines, the preparation of the couches, and hot water together with the service.Likewise, it was agreed that whoever has been made quinquennalis in this collegium, he shall have to be exempt from contributions for the time when he is quinquennalis, and that to him a double share from all distributions be given. Likewise, it was agreed that to the scribe and the messenger, who are to be exempt from contributions, a share and a half from every distribution be given. Likewise, it was agreed that whoever has performed the function of quinquennalis honestly, to him because of this honour a share and a half of everything be given, so that the rest will hope for the same through rightful conduct.Likewise, it was agreed that whoever wants to raise any complaint or issue, he shall raise that issue at a convention, so that we may banquet quiet and in good cheer on solemn days.Likewise, it was agreed that whoever moves from one place to another so as to cause turmoil, he shall be fined four sesterces.Yet if any one speaks abusively of another or causes an uproar, he shall be finedtwelve sesterces.If anyone uses abusive or insolent language to a quinquennalisduring the banquets, he shall be fined twenty sesterces.Likewise, it was agreed that on the solemn days of his terms of office the quinquennalisshall conduct worship with [incense] {30} and wine and perform his other duties clothed in white, and that on the [birthdays] of Diana and Antinous he shall supply oil for the collegium in the public bath before they banquet.
