CaptionRoman history bears witness to the fact that women's bodies were not their own but lying at the intersection of public interest as they did were constitutionally entrusted to males to regulate and administer for the good of the state. ____________ Julia daughter of Augustus late 1st century BCE Julia 39 BCE-14/15 CE the daughter of Augustus was as celebrated for her beauty wit and kind-heartedness as for her indiscretions. During her second marriage to M.Vipsanius Agrippa 28-12 BCE a man twenty-three years older than she Julia engaged in love affairs. Whether Agrippa knew about them or not is unclear. Augustus may have been unaware of her activities. Macrobius a grammarian who wrote during the late 4th century CE portrays him putting the best construction on what he heard and saw.
