Extract

An album was a whitened board or tablet on which information could be published in writing. Such tablets were widely used in Roman public life, for example to publicize the *praetors' edicts. Album was also the standard term for a published list or register. The album senatorium was the official list of members of the *senate which was publicly posted outside the senate-house from the time of *Augustus.
