Augustus, with a clever diplomatic and military activity, sets the limes on the Rhine-Danube front, despite the disaster of Varus in 9 AD, thanks to repeated campaigns of Drusus and Tiberius, and at the end of the reign of Germanicus, son of Drusus. The relative peace with the Parthians materialized by the return of signs and prisoners of Carrhae (53 J before. C-. ) Before 20 J. C-. This event has a significant impact.
