We, the representatives of the Consul Officiorum, have this day bargained and purchased from Jeannie May Crawford of the township of Novac the exclusive rights to ownership and sale of the slave Carla Boone for the sum of one thousand bottle caps, and those of her unborn child for the sum of five hundred bottle caps, the receipt whereof is hereby acknowledged. We warrant the slave and her young to be sound, healthy, and slaves for life. We covenant with the said, Jeannie May Crawford, that we have full power to bargain and sell said slave and her offspring. Payment of an additional five hundred bottle caps will be due pending successful maturation of the fetus, the claim to which shall be guaranteed by possession of this document. M. Scribonius Libo Drusus et al.
Administrators of M. Licinius Crassus, Consul Officiorum ab Famulatus
Behind the scenesEdit
- The Legion officials are named after actual Roman historical figures. Marcus Scribonius Libo Drusus was a conspirator who committed suicide in AD 16 before facing trial for plotting against the Emperor Tiberius. Marcus Licinius Crassus was a wealthy politician and general who was one of the members of the First Triumvirate with Julius Caesar and Pompey the Great.
- Crassus' title is in broken Latin (for example, "Famulatus" is in the wrong case; it should appear as "Famulato," the word's ablative form). The title appears to mean something similar to "Secretary of Slavery Affairs."
