Yes. In The Aeneid, Books VIII through XII, Virgil references Aeneas’ Great Shield many times. We know from Galinsky that the Senate acted to honor Augustus with his new title by placing a golden shield, inscribed with the four virtues, on the wall of the wall of the new Senate building.

Sergio Mattarella recently became the president of Italy and already has done great things like making Italy a better place and wanting to help fix the budget. Although both Augustus and Sergio are both great leaders, Augustus is a better one because of his great successes and his loyalty to his people and him actually making Rome a better place..
