(also, under the Empire, Vigintivĭri). A group of minor magistrates at Rome whose offices and functions were of different origin, but which as a rule must have been discharged by a person as a preliminary to his candidacy for the quaestorship. (See Honores.) These magistrates were the tresviri capitales, the tresviri monetales, the quattuorviri viis in urbe purgandis, the duoviri viis extra urbem purgandis, the decemviri litibus iudicandis, and the quattuor praefecti Capuam Cumas. The fourth and sixth of these magistrates were abolished under Augustus. See Mommsen, Röm. Staatsrecht, ii. 578-595.
