"Augustus received the standards and the prisoners as though he had defeated the Parthians in a campaign; he took great pride in the settlement, and declared that he had won back without striking a blow what had earlier been lost in battle. Indeed, he gave orders that sacrifices should be voted in honour of his success....Besides this he rode into the capital on horseback [an ovatio or minor triumph], and was honoured with a triumphal arch."
