Chapter Summary

The Fasti consulares, naming Rome's magistrates, were inscribed on four panels that were framed by small Corinthian pilasters, while the Fasti triumphales, displaying the names of Roman triumphators, were inscribed on four pilasters of Doric order. The list of Roman triumphators stops sharply at 19 BC. There were no later additions; in fact, there was not even any space spared on the four pilasters to add more names. Thus, the Fasti triumphales were not a list in active use, but were edited and published at one time as a fully completed and closed record. In emphasising the connection between Augustus' return and the end of the Fasti triumphales, the author argues that the Parthian arch with its celebration of the signa recepta and its completed list of past triumphs symbolically announced the beginning of a new age, in which foreign people submitted to the pax Romana without bloodshed.
