Enthroned in an elaborate chariot, Caesar rides past a triumphal arch. He holds a palm branch, the traditional attribute of Victory, depicted here as the winged allegorical figure holding a laurel crown above Caesar’s head. Ancient reports of triumphs agree this task was typically assigned to a slave. The words VENI, VEDI, VICI on the banner famously translate as “I came, I saw, I conquered.”
