A Love Story in Tarraco, Part II

I started my search for more information about the man who dedicated a statue to his wife in Tarraco around the year 214, by focusing on his job title: Sevir Augustal. The Seviratus Augustalis was an urban institution of semi-official nature which was mainly held by wealthy freedmen in the first to the third century. Their functions were a cross between magistrate and priest for the cult of the Roman Emperor. There is not much documentation on what the Sevirs actually did.
