I'm looking at a painting of the triumphs held after Julius Caesar's victories, and some people are carrying banners. I know the "SPQR" stand for "Senatus populusque Romanus," but does anyone know what the other letters stand for? The Romans are a little overly fond of abbreviation I think... This is roughly what they look like:
SPQR IVLIVS CAESAR P-M-
SPQR DIVO IVLIO CÆSARI D-P-P-P-
Oh yeah, and what does SPQR ...
