Marcus Cocceius Firmus

Postby Valerius Claudius Iohanes on Fri Oct 23, 2009 7:09 pm

Salvete, Sodales -

We have a request for membership in the Society from a Marcus Cocceius Firmus, an NR member, who was - however - unable to apply by the membership request form, since it lacked a choice for "Cocceius" as a nomen. I've communicated with him and told him that, unless there was some specific objection from someone, I would get him enrolled directly and without the form.

Links to profiles of his:

http://www.novaroma.org/nr/Marcus_Cocceius_Firmus_%28Nova_Roma%29

Are there any objections from anyone? I'll check again here on Monday and, none showing, I'll ask that he be enrolled.

Optime valete, amici.

P.S. You may have noticed the link to his site on Epona, the Gallic-Roman Goddess of Horses. It's an impressive site.

Salve, amice Curator,

His chosen gens is not only attested, but quite distinguished: the first of the Five Good Emperors, Marcus Cocceius Nerva, comes strongly to mind. I've added "Cocceius" and "Cocceia" to the pull-down list of nomina on the application form. I think you can take that as a Yes. >({|:-)

Have him try it now. It should take. After that, all he has to do is show up in the Forum. Quite a few of our Pending members haven't yet; that's why they're still "Pending".

In fide,
Aldus Marius Peregrinus.
