This is part of a technical monograph on the aqueducts of Rome, written by Frontinus, who was appointed curator in a.d. 97. It was part of the policy of Augustus to create small senatorial boards for the various departments of the administration of Rome, hitherto badly managed by the annual magistrates (cf. No. 10). Here we see Augustus and the senate co-operating to set up an aqueduct board and providing its members with a clerical and professional staff. The workmen were also partly the property of the state and partly of the emperor, and paid for by the public and imperial treasuries respectively.
