IMO please dont rag on me :)



back on topic.

so it seems the results indicate A is the answer for all questions.

I think that his name should be Octavianus and not Octavius at this time.

Another thing, wouldn't it be better to name them O1, O2, O3, etc instead of Oa, Ob, Oc?

Hi Ruben...thanks for the post.
As the scholar of thing Roman I know you to be, if there is supporting evidence for the name change I would consider it, but also realise that all teh articles in Wiki, the Roman-net etc that I have seen, refer to him either as Octavian, or Gaius Octavius. The name Octavianus would alos be more letters to fit into confined spaced and I this is already limiting.

As to the O1, O2, etc did you read the first page of this thread? Using O1 etc will not sort properly in order for some regions as there is more than 10 terts in some, and if I used numerals I would have to use the double form O01 O02 O03 etc which is more writing and reading issues. That's why I used Oa Ob Oc etc. I think it works just fine.

Please let me know about the Octavianus link and I'll have a look if you have it.

Apart from that, do you like the map, concept, colours etc.

EDIT// "Owing to his adoption," (by Julius Caesar) "Octavius assumed the name Gaius Julius Caesar. Roman tradition dictated that he also append the surname Octavianus (Octavian) to indicate his biological family; however, no evidence exists that he ever used that name."
REF : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augustus; Para "Rise to Power"

Sorry, Ruben, it seems there is evidence as above, but since he didn't use that name, then Octavius is good for me. :)

"Octavius also learned formally of his inheritance and adoption by the terms of Caesar's will, which had been broadcast by Marc Antony. By law, the adopted son of Caesar, Gaius Octavius, would now legally be known as Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus."

Source: http://web.mac.com/heraklia/Augustus/Oc ... index.html

This happened before the battle of Actium so at that time he was known as Octavianus. Later he was known as Augustus. Octavian is the Anglicised name given to him like Mark Anotny for Marcus Antonius and thus not his proper Latin name.

Don't always believe what wikipedia says, anyone can write anything in it.
