The remains of the Augusteum at Narona (modern Vid, Croatia) with its fifteen marble sculptures exhibited on a platform. An Augusteum was a site of imperial cult, named after the imperial title of Augustus. The Augusteum at Narona seems to have been built in about 10 BCE and was later dedicated by Publius Cornelius Dolabella, the governor of the province of Dalmatia.
