festivals were known under this name.
The 23d of September, the birthday of Augustus, celebrated after B.C. 13 by games held in
the Circus (Dio Cass. liv. 26, 34).
The Augustalia proper held for ten days annually (Oct. 3-12), instituted in B.C. 19, when
Augustus returned to Rome after settling the provinces (Dio Cass. liv. 34).
