  1. In Clessical Laitin: IMPERATOR CAESAR DIVI F AVGVSTVS.
  2. The dates o his rule are contemporary dates; Augustus bided unner twa calendars, the Roman Republican until 45 BC, an the Julian efter 45 BC. Due tae departures frae Julius Caesar's intentions, Augustus restorit the Julian calendar in 8 BC, an the correspondence atween the proleptic Julian calendar an the actual calendar observit in Rome is uncertain afore 8 BC.(Blackburn & Holford-Strevens 2003: 670–1)
