Augustus's Forum (Forum of Augustus) in Rome, Italy
Augustus's Forum (Forum of Augustus) in Rome, Italy

uploaded by: Victoria

Description: Ruins of the Forum of Augustus nowadays.

The Forum was built by order of Emperor Octavian Augustus. The most important facility of the Forum was the temple dedicated to Mars Avenger (Mars Ultor) - the biggest building in the Forum of Augustus. The temple was built of Carrara marble and was consecrated in 2 y. A.C. The Forum of Augustus, with length 125 m. and a width of 118 meters, is the second of the four imperial forums in ancient Rome.

Emperor Octavian Augustus (63 BC – 14 AD) was the founder of the Roman Empire and its first Emperor, ruling from 27 BC until his death. Born into an old wealthy branch of the Octavii family, in 44 BC Augustus was adopted by his maternal great-uncle Gaius Julius Caesar. This implies continuity of birthright as heir to become the ruler of the empire after the murder of its great-uncle Caesar.
