At one time all roads led to Rome. It ruled the known world with its Caesars and its great and powerful Roman army.
The very name Augustus Caesar came about when Octavius defeated Mark Anthony and Lepidus at the battle of Actium in 31 B.C. He had his name changed to Augustus in 29 B.C. and never looked back. Augustus meant the highest. He was now god of all the gods. There is a Pantheon in Rome to this day that testifies to this deification of their Caesars. Many Christians died in the Colosseum (whose remains still stand) because they would not recognize Caesar as the god among the gods.
