  Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2005.05.15
There is a generous provision of 40 illustrations of good fl-and-white quality, and, although some are well known (but nevertheless appropriate to the theme), others are less familiar and thus to be welcomed, such as minor artefacts, a number from the provinces.
Another way in which Augustus and his family insinuated themselves (not a term used by S.) into the life and structure of the Roman state was their use of private staff and finances for public purposes.
Augustus' acceptance of the title pater patriae in 2 BCE seems to be the culmination of several years of grooming three potential heirs: Tiberius, Gaius, and Lucius.

  'Pater' -- Some Reflections
The Sons of Mil in Irish myth are known to actually represent the Gaels themselves, which would imply that the Gaels ancestor was the God of the Underworld.
This would tend to coincide with the beliefs of the Celtic Gauls, reported by Caesar, that they "claim to be descended from Dis Pater, and say that this is the teaching of the druids.

 Patron Augustus—Client Rome
In the Roman family the pater was the head of the household and had a duty to protect his wife and children, who were seen as lesser than himself: his family would repay him by giving him complete obedience and respect.
This duty of the pater and family is referred to in Latin as pietas.
The head of the family and heads of the state were both seen as ‘pater’—on the family level it was paterfamilias, senators were known as patres conscripti, and the emperor was called pater patriae from the time of Augustus.

The result was the original version of this portrait, which at last measured up to his expectations.
Framed in stone to underscore the monumentality of the subject, the image became known as "Patriae Pater," and it was Peale's ambition to make it the main likeness by which posterity would know Washington.
In the end, however, Peale's Washington never became the national icon that its maker hoped it would be, and today Americans know Washington best through the much-replicated likeness that Gilbert Stuart painted of him in 1796.

Crucial to the cult of monarchy was the idea of king as parens patriae, father of his people, bearing all the privileges ever granted to fathers in the long tradition of patriarchy.
although we only term it fatherly power (potestos patria); yet, being well considered how far it did reach, we may truly say that it was in a sort royal power (potestas regia); as now, in a right and true construction, royal power (potestas regia) may be called fatherly power (potestas patria).
At the same time, the concept of pater patriae limited the authority of lesser fathers, who were themselves permanently subordinated to the father of the nation.
