SJ emails to remind us that today 2000 years ago (Australian time*) Augustus Caesar (23 September 63 BC – 19 August 14 AD) passed away. The first and greatest of the Roman emperors.
The scene above is from season 2 of the Rome mini-series. Magnificent if you haven’t seen it – unfortunately the second half of the second season to rushed (after the series got cancelled – too expensive).
* We hadn’t forgotten, of course.
