Room IX: Augustus
This room is dominated by the powerful reconstruction, at life-size, of the pronaos of the temple of Augustus at Ancyra (Ankara), including the text of the emperor’s achievements, the Res gestae divi Augusti, inscribed on its walls.
The iconography of Augustus at various points of his life is documented in numerous portraits; the models of monuments created by his heirs complete the picture.
