  • Author(s): Cantor, Lea Yvonne
  • et al.
Abstract

This paper aims to address the Republican precedent for Augustan auctoritas, with a particular focus on its role in legitimizing near-absolute rule in a State which continued to refer to itself as a res publica, and to its leader as an exceptionally authoritative princeps.
