There was also a nomenclator
to attend upon the censor (who had no lictors): he

passed to the emperor, it is natural that we find these attendants
reappearing as: nomenclatores a censibus
attached to the imperial bureau which received petitions for admission to
the Equites (C. I. L.
14.3553). [See also MAGISTER
