The Battle of Actium, 2 September 31 BC
A representation of the naval Battle of Actium, 2 September 31 BC, which took place off the western coast of Greece. Octavian, through this decisive victory over the combined forces of Mark Anthony and Cleopatra, became master of the Roman world. An account of the battle given in Virgil's 'Aeneid', was translated into English in the late 17th century and may have been the inspiration for this commission.
