The Acts of Augustus, I.

had been oppressed by the tyranny of a faction.a For which service the senate, with complimentary resolutions, enrolled me in its order, in the consulship of Gaius Pansa and Aulus Hirtius, giving me at the same time consular precedence in voting; it also gave me the imperium.b As propraetor it ordered me, along with the consuls, “to see that the republic suffered no harm.” In the same year, moreover, as both consuls had fallen in war,c the people elected me consul and a triumvir for settling the constitution.d

2. Those who slew my fathere I drove into exile, punishing their deed by due process of lawf and afterwards when they waged war upon the republic I twiceg defeated them in battle.
