Ancyrānum Monumentum

The monument at Ancyra (now Angora), a marble wall, of which the greater part is preserved. It belonged to the temple of Augustus at Ancyra, and contained the Latin text of a Greek translation of the report drawn up by that emperor himself on the actions of his reign (index rerum a se gestarum). By the terms of his will this report, engraved in bronze, was set up in front of his mausoleum at Rome, and copies were made of it for other temples of Augustus in the provinces. See Perrot, Exploration Archéologique de la Galatie, etc.; the fac-simile of the inscription with commentary by Mommsen (Berlin, 1883); and Augustus, p. 171.
