ARA PACIS AUGUSTAE * an altar erected by the senate in honour of the victorious return of Augustus from Spain and Gaul in 13 B.C., on which the magistrates, priests and Vestals should offer annual sacrifices (Mon.

The decree of the senate was dated 4th July, 13 B.C. (Fast. Amit. ad iv non.

Praen. ad III kal. Febr., CIL i 2. p. 212, 232; Fast. Verul. ap. NS 1923, 196; Ov. Fast. i. 709-710; Act. Arval. a. 38, CIL vi. 2028; a. 39 (?) ib. 32347 a; HJ 612). Which of these ceremonies constitutes the setting of the procession represented on the reliefs is doubtful. The altar is represented on coins of Nero (Cohen 27-31), and of Domitian (ib. 338), but is not mentioned elsewhere either in literature or inscriptions (for the discussion of these coins, see Kubitschek ap.
