Grundlage für diese Arbeit ist Band fifty four Kapitel 7 der Römischen Geschichte des Cassius Dio, nach der Übersetzung von Otto Veh. Ich werde versuchen, die Quelle zu interpretieren und Bezug nehmen auf das Verhältnis von Cassius Dio zu Augustus und die historische Richtigkeit seiner Niederschriften, um aufzuzeigen inwieweit diese Quelle verlässlich ist. Zunächst werde ich eine Einführung in die historische Einordnung der Ostpolitik des Augustus aufzeigen, danach wende ich mich dem der Hausarbeit zugrunde legenden textual content zu, berichte über den Autoren, seine Arbeit und den Inhalt des siebten Kapitels, des fifty four. Bandes, vor allem auf die Provinzen Athen und Sparta werde ich eingehen.
Augustus wollte die Pax Augusta im ganzen Reich ausbreiten und als „Kaiser des Friedens“ in die Geschichte eingehen, während er versuchte das Reich im Westen und Norden zu vergrößern, so struggle seine Ostpolitik eher defensiv, er ordnete die im Osten gelegenen Provinzen des Reiches neu.

'Histories of the Hidden God' explores this custom from antiquity to this day. The essays specialize in 3 crucial issues: the concealment of the hidden God; the human quest for the hidden God, and revelations of the hidden God.
