Local aristocracies were crucial to the administrative and social assimilation of provincial communities in the Roman world. Leonard Curchin focuses on local political elites in the Iberian Peninsula, providing the first comprehensive and up-to-date prosopographical catalogue of all known local magistrates in Roman Spain.

Curchin makes full use of the latest epigraphic discoveries, including not only the recorded careers of local magistrates but also the new Lex lrnitana. In his introduction he examines both the political role of the magistrates and the social mechanics of elite romanization. Among the traditional assumptions he challenges are the standard size of the local senates, the fixed order of offices, and the nature of the 'quattuorvirate. ' He also discusses magistrates' origins, career progression, duties, social status, personal nomenclature, and private wealth.

Entries in the catalogue are arranged alphabetically by city within each province. Indexes of names and magistracies facilitate cross-referencing. The volume includes statistical tables as well as maps.
