Res Gestae Divi Augusti

by Augustus Caesar

The funerary inscription of Augustus Caesar, the first Roman emperor.

According to the text it was written just before Augustus' death in AD 14, but it was probably written years earlier and likely went through many revisions. Augustus left the text with his will, which instructed the Senate to set up the inscriptions. The original, which has not survived, was engraved upon a pair of bronze pillars and placed in front of Augustus' mausoleum. Excerpted from Res Gestae Divi Augusti on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

English-language translations of Res Gestae Divi Augusti include:
Fragment of an early copy of the Res Gestae at the Monumentum Ancyranum in Ankara, Turkey.

This work was published before January 1, 1926, and is in the public domain worldwide because the author died at least 100 years ago.
