The work presented concludes author’s long interest in the palace elite of the Roman Empire in the 4th century A.D. He tries to fill the lack of modern monograph dedicated to the group of four heads of palace administration: quaestor (QSP), master of office’s (Mag. Off.), count of the sacred largesse (CSL) and count of the privy purse (CRP), who formed the emperor’s council which met in the consistory of the imperial palace, thus often being referred to as comites consistoriani. The work uses the alphabetical order of biograms. They contain information about: names, social and regional background, career, religion, family and connections, education and professional qualifications, and collects literature concerning them.
