Life of Augustus #37 – Victor

Life of Augustus #37 – Victor

Rome had never seen anything like the three—day celebration of Octavian's three-fold triumph — for his victories in Illyricum, Actium, and Alexandria — held in August of 29 BC.  

He was granted a range of new powers, some he even refused as being too much. 
But there was one that he apparently relished. 
The doors of the Temple of Janus Geminus is closed for only the third time in 700 years.
The Senate also decrees the building of the first stone arch to celebrate a victory over a foreign enemy. 
So who is this new dictator of Rome? 
Octavian gave a big speech to the Alexandrians explaining why he was showing them clemency. 
But he has the seventeen-year-old Caesarion, allegedly the son of the dictator and co-regent with Cleopatra, as well as Antony’s eldest son by Fulvia, Antyllus, executed.
