Having thus given a very short summary of his life, I shall prosecute the several parts of it, not in order of time, but arranging his acts into distinct classes, for the sake of perspicuity. He [Note 1] was engaged in five civil wars, namely, those of Modena, Philippi, Perugia, Sicily, and Actium; the first and last of which were against Antony, and the second against Brutus and Cassius; the third against Lucius Antonius, the triumvir's brother and the fourth against Sextus Pompeius, the son of Gnaeus Pompeius.

Note 1: he = Augustus

Events: Siege of Modena, Battle of Actium, The battle of Philippi, Siege of Perugia, The Sicilian War
