The Ara Pacis is a monument representing a procession. Along with Augustus' Mausoleum, sundial, and ustrinum, it formed part of a dynamic complex on the Campus Martius that united writing with performance, static representation with ritual reenactment. As with much of Augustus poetry, it heralds occasionality while the actual occasion depicted on it is hard to pin down.
