TheDeeds of the Divine Augustushttp://classics.mit.edu/Augustus/deeds.html
TheEmperor Augustus’ deeds web source is one of the sources thatdescribe the emperor. It was written by Augustus and later translatedby Thomas Bushnell. The fact that the copy explains the deeds thatEmperor Augustus subjected the entire world to the roman people’srule as well as the money he spent for the roman people and the statemakes it a reliable source. It is because it allows the readersto understand the mode of operations of the emperor. It can beregarded as the primary web source since it describes the EmperorAugustus`s life solely (Eck,2007).

Anonline encyclopedia that describes the roman rulers is another websource that can be relied on by all the readers. It is because of theanalysis it gives of the different roman rulers together with theirmodes of leadership.

The aspect also offers the learnerswith a brilliant opportunity to understand how efficient orinefficient Emperor Augustus was in reference to other roman rulers.The web source is a secondary source since it incorporates manyrulers with rulers with Emperor Augustus inclusive but not EmperorAugustus alone (Lintott,2010).
AUGUSTUS:A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS http://www.vroma.org/~bmcmanus/augustus2.html
Augustusas a man of all seasons happens to be another web source. It explainshow dramatically Emperor Augustus altered the balance of power thatwas in existence in the roman’s government system unnoticeably.Emperor Augustus claimed explicitly that he exceeded in influencealthough he had not as much power as his colleagues. The fact thatthe book analyzes the Emperor Augustus’s mode of governance makesthe web source very reliable to the learners. The web source is aprimary web source since it solely describes Emperor Augustus and hismode of operations as the roman ruler (Scarre,2012).
Thefirst Caesars web source that was found very essential and reliablein describing Emperor Augustus. It concentrates with the year 31 BC ayear that Emperor Augustus was in a post that was utterlyunprecedented. It also focuses on the civil war that had troubledRome and the ruler that had preceded Emperor Augustus forapproximately twenty years. The source’s focus on the affairs thatwere in progress in Emperor Augustus’s reign makes the source veryreliable and essential to history students. The source can bereferred to as a secondary web source since it incorporates anextensive range of Caesars and has not narrowed down to EmperorAugustus who is the document’s point of concentration (Galinsky,2012).
Nicolausof Damascus: Life of Augustushttp://www.attalus.org/translate/nicolaus1.html
Lifeof Augustus by Nicolaus of Damascus is who happened to be ahistorian and philosopher is another web source that can be relied onin terms of historical research. He is described as EmperorAugustus’s friend, who was privileged to meet Emperor Augustusoccasionally in Rome. He, therefore, had a lot to narrate as far asEmperor Augustus’s life is concerned. The web source hence becomesvery reliable since learners can be able to get a clear picture ofEmperor Augustus from Nicolaus’ narration. The source is a primarysource since it particularly describes Emperor Augustus’s life(Goldsworthy,2014).
