Note 070
From Chapter 43 of the Decline & Fall

The statue in the villa Borghese at Rome, in a sitting posture, with an open hand, which is vulgarly given to Belisarius, may be ascribed with more dignity to Augustus in the act of propitiating Nemesis (Winckelman, Hist. de l'Art, tom. iii. p. 266.).

Ex nocturno vitû etiam stipem, quotannis, die certo, emendicabat a populo, cavana manum asses porrigentibus praebens (Sueton. in August. c. 91, with an excellent note of Casaubon.).
