“Augustus, the first Roman emperor, realized that his portrait image could serve as an important instrument of propaganda. Court sculptors fashioned a prototypical portrait type that was then copied. The copies were dispersed throughout the Roman world so that further copies

Through these statues and busts, as well as through coins with the emperor’s image, everyone in the empire was aware of what he looked like and was reminded of his power and authority.” (Thompson, Nancy L. Roman Art: A Resource for Educators: Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2007.)
