A fragmentary loricata statue preserved in the Civic Museums of Reggio Emilia (the ancient Regium Lepidi), to which in the past had not been given sufficient attention, could be counted among the few effigies of Augustus that have come down to us from the territory of Regio VIII. The decoration of the cuirass, in particular, seems to celebrate the return of the military insignia that the Parthians had previously taken from the Romans, as can be hypothesized on the basis of the comparison with the monetary images of the Parthian Arch, erected by Augustus in the Forum of Rome.
