In the last years of his life, Augustus wrote his own obituary, a lengthy account of his Deeds. It was carved on pillars that were placed all over the Roman empire. In it, Augustus shared information on his successful military campaigns, on his generous donations to soldiers and civilians, and on all the titles and powers he held. But there was much that he left out, including his not-so-successful campaigns, the source of the money he generously donated, and what the titles and powers implied. In this ebook I have filled in the gaps to “help” him say what he really meant to say.
