 p14  Admissionales

Unsigned article on p14 of

William Smith, D.C.L., LL.D.:
A Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities, John Murray, London, 1875.

ADMISSIONA′LES were chamberlains at the imperial court, who introduced persons to the presence of the emperor (Lamprid. Sever. 4; officium admissionis, Suet. Vesp. 14). They were divided into four classes; the chief officer of each class was called proximus admissionum (Amm. Marc. XV.5; Vop. Aurel. 12). The admissionales were usually freedmen (Cod. Theod. 6 tit. 2 s12; tit. 9 s2; tit. 35 s3).
