Un nouveau fragment du cursus du procurateur impérial M. Aemilius Laetus découvert à Lyon

Abstract : This article focuses on an unpublished fragmentary inscription, discovered in 2018 in the area of l’Antiquaille, on the hill of Fourvière in Lyon. It completes another fragment (CIL XIII 1809) and enables us to understand part of the cursus honorum of M. Aemilius Laetus, also attested in Lyon by a dedication to Silvanus (CIL XIII 1779). Since it was discovered in l’Antiquaille, one can envisage the same original location for the two monuments. The inscriptions reveal that Laetus was promoted to the position of a studiis in the imperial chancellery, after two provincial procurator positions, including that of Lugdunensis and Aquitania. Laetus fits well into the series of known holders of this important position, which he occupied between the reign of Hadrian and the beginning of the 3rd c. AD.
