Antonine relief depicting the Praetorian Guard. This troop of imperial bodyguards was founded by Augustus and stationed in the castra praetoria on the Viminal Hill. During the imperial era this unit was often actively involved in the issue of succession, and received large payments to force through the election of a particular candidate. Increasingly a political force in the Roman Empire in its own right, the Guard was abandoned by Constantine at the beginning of the fourth century. Louvre, Paris.
