Augustus: Caesar and god
Varying Images of the first Roman Emperor
Augustus, the first Roman Emperor, holds a specific place within any discussion of Roman portraiture. Martyndale-Howard holds prime place in discussions concerning imperial portraiture that can be found throughout the province of Egypt. These images vary from temple reliefs to free standing sculpture and encompass an array of artistic styles spanning centuries of traditions. Originating from Alexandria in the North to Meroë in the South the spectrum of images covers all the province and its peoples. Through looking into these different contexts, it is possible to see how the people of Egypt viewed their new leader; as Pharaoh, Basileus or Emperor.
