It is clear that Augustus was not the first to carry away from the vanquished votive offerings and images of gods, but was only following an old precedent. For when Troy
was taken and the Greeks were dividing up the spoils, Sthenelus the son of Capaneus was given the wooden image of Zeus Herceius （Of the Courtyard）; and many years later, when Dorians were migrating to Sicily
, Antiphemus the founder of Gela
, after the sack of Omphace, a town of the Sicanians, removed to Gela
an image made by Daedalus.
