dc.descriptionThe South Procession, upper torso and busts of two flamines maiores who face each other, depicting the two busts which follow; Dedicated on 30 January 9 BCE, the altar was erected in the Campus Martius by the Roman Senate to commemorate Augustus' return from Spain and Gaul on 4 July 13 BCE. The best-known exemplar of Augustan art, it is typified by its eclectic mix of Classical and Hellenistic elements and skillful amalgam of Roman myth-history and contemporary events.
