      But to compensate in some degree for what was then taken away, the custom was introduced of bestowing what was termed Triumphalia Ornamenta, that is, permission to receive the titles bestowed upon, and to appear in public with the robes worn by the imperatores of the commonwealth when they triumphed, and to bequeath to their descendants triumphal statues.
    • 1898 April 16, Paolo Mantegazza, anonymous translator, “From the Nuova Antologia. Regressive Evolution.”, in The Living Age, sixth series, volume XVIII; from the beginning, volume CCXVII, number 2806, Boston, Mass.: The Living Age Company, section VI, page 160, column 2:
      Modern emperors and consuls of the year VIII. are no more the imperatores of ancient Rome, and modern religious organizations are but the phantasms of mediæval corporations.

      Given the sudden proliferation of self-portraits on the coins of all the imperatores of this period, many of whom certainly had not received such a privilege, such an unattested grant to Antony need not be assumed.
