Understanding the Trophy of Augustus at La Turbie
• A victory monument. The trophy of Augustus was built in 6 BC in honour of Octavius, Caesar’s nephew and later Emperor Augustus, following the subjugation of the peoples of the Alps. It stands at the frontier between Gaul and proclaims the unity and power of the Roman Empire.
• A deified Emperor. Trophies were traditionally dedicated to the gods of victory. The Trophy of Augustus is part of the landscape of a shrine devoted to Heracles Monoikos, which gave rise to the name Monaco. Augustus is thus assimilated to Heracles-Hercules, a demi-god who had been promised immortality on carrying out his twelve tasks.
