Curule Aediles[edit]

Since Curule aedili held Imperium, is there an example in the Roman history of an aedile actually commanding an army? --Chino 06:28, 1 Apr 2005 (UTC)

There is no evidence that curule aediles held imperium. I believe that information on the cursus honorum page to be incorrect. CaesarGJ 1/13/06

"In 44 BC Julius Caesar added two plebeian aediles, called Cereales, whose special duty was the care of the cereal (corn) supply." How did a New World crop (corn?) end up in Italy in 44 BC? 98.201.155.215 (talk) 01:51, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Plebeian Aediles sacrosanct[edit]

The plebeian aediles enjoyed the same sacrosanctity as the tribuni plebis -- see H.Malcovati ORF (Oratorum Romanorum Fragmenta Liberae Rei Publicae), ed.4 1976, no.8 M.Porcius Cato fr.219 (p.89) Appietas (talk) 06:26, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Aediles in the municipiae[edit]

This text focuses largely on the aediles of Rome itself (understandably). However it was also an important function in municipiae (see Lex Irnitana). I think this should be mentioned since it explains why mayors in the latin world are still referred to as edil. Kleuske (talk) 10:24, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
