Profile: Housed in the Ara Pacis Museum, the Ara Pacis Augustae is a monument built in 13BC to commemorate Pax, the Roman goddess of Peace. The monument, an altar, was built to mark the return of the Emperor Augustus after his conquests in France and Spain. Although its current location is on the banks of the Tiber close to Ponte Cavour, it was originally located on the Mars Field before being moved in 1938 and reassembled in its present position in the museum.
