Octavian Augustus
Good Augustus

One day at Octavian Augustus a citizen of Furnius appeared, who wanted to ask the emperor’s forgiveness for his father, who during the civil war was a supporter of Mark Antony. Octavian agreed and spared the man.

Then Furnius was to say: “One wrong alone I have received at your hands, Caesar; you have forced me to live and to die owing you a greater debt of gratitude than I can ever repay”. Furnius’s gratitude won him an even greater grace from Augustus.
