20. tum sacerdotibus creandis animum adiecit,1 quamquam ipse plurima sacra obibat, ea maxime quae nunc ad Dialem flaminem pertinent. [2] sed quia in civitate bellicosa plures Romuli quam Numae similes reges putabat fore iturosque ipsos ad bella, ne sacra regiae vicis desererentur, flaminem Iovi adsiduum sacerdotem creavit insignique eum veste et curuli regia sella adornavit. huic duos flamines adiecit, Marti unum, alterum Quirino; [3] virginesque Vestae legit, Alba oriundum sacerdotium et genti conditoris haud alienum. iis, ut adsiduae templi antistites essent, stipendium de publico statuit, virginitate aliisque caerimoniis venerabiles ac sanctas fecit. [4] Salios item duodecim Marti Gradivo legit tunicaeque pictae insigne dedit et super tunicam aeneum pectori tegumen caelestiaque arma, quae ancilia appellantur, ferre ac per urbem ire canentes carmina cum tripudiis sollemnique saltatu iussit. [5] pontificem deinde Numam Marcium Marci filium ex patribus legit eique sacra omnia exscripta exsignataque attribuit, quibus hostiis, quibus diebus, ad quae templa sacra fierent atque unde in eos sumptus pecunia erogaretur. [6] cetera quoque omnia publica privataque sacra pontificis scitis subiecit, ut esset [p. 72] quo consultum plebes veniret, ne quid divini iuris2 neglegendo patrios ritus peregrinosque adsciscendo turbaretur; [7] nec caelestes modo caerimonias, sed iusta quoque funebria placandosque manes ut idem pontifex edoceret, quaeque prodigia fulminibus aliove quo visu missa susciperentur atque curarentur. ad ea elicienda ex mentibus divinis Iovi Elicio aram in Aventino dicavit deumque consuluit auguriis, quae suscipienda essent.
