But before the distribution picture can be analysed in greater detail , it has to be considered to what extent the varying excavation procedures employed in Pompeii may have caused changes in the preservation percentage: in other words, whether the existing picture corresponds to the situation in 79 AD. 194 From the discovery of Pompeii in 1748 up to 1860, Pompeian research , Iike antiquarian research in general , was characterized by learned dilettantism which placed greater store upon spectacular single finds than upon the systematic acquisition of information on everyday Iife in the ancient city.

Ceius Secundus and C. Calventius Sittius Magnus, dv. , must be placed in the second half of the 70s. 181 L. Ovidius Veiento and A. Vettius Firmus, aed. , and A. Vettius Caprasius Felix and P. Paquius Proculus , dv . , in turn, date to the firsthalf ofthat decade. 182 A number of other candidates can also be dated to the last c. 10 years of Pompeii's history. 183 These datings of Jater candidatures may prove an important aid to a dating of the electoral inscriptions as a whole, but a presupposition is that a survey of the distribution of the inscriptions between the various candidatures be conducted.

Not least the marked statistical deviations in the proportion of initials and the connection between running-mates' nameform distributions cannot possibly have arisen by random posting, which would have resulted in a far more uniform distribution of name-forms between the various candidates. The inscriptions of the individual candidate and the individual candidate pair must in other words have been posted collectively and been subjected to control. The conclusion can thus, I believe , be drawn that the Pompeian electoral inscriptions must have resulted from an initiative taken by the candidate hirnself or by persons connected with him, and thus be interpreted as part of election campaigns under the control of the candidates themselves.
