Note regarding Triumvir Nocturnus:
At a very remote age the direction of the police was entrusted to three magistrates called Triumviri Nocturni, because their principal duty was to watch over the safety of the City at night. Valerius Maximus speaks of one of them, Publius Villius, being fined because "he had not kept with diligence his nocturnal watch," and of other triumviri who were punished because they had not run with proper speed to extinguish a fire which had broken out in a jeweller's shop on the Via Sacra." -- Lanciani (p. 221).
