worldhistoryfacts:

A fragment of the Res Gestae (basically, “the things I did”), an inscription commissioned by Augustus toward the end of his reign (27 BCE-14 CE) as Roman Emperor. Like many of his works of propaganda, the Res Gestae portrays Augustus as the savior of traditional Roman values and an unfailingly generous father to his people. The inscription was put up around the empire; the most complete copy was found in Turkey.
