BaruchNobility is a tricky word ...Wed May 30, 2012 21:44126.96.36.199in Latin it meant "new money" aka the Equites, not the Patricians. I think a better word would be honor. The Roman Republican public office process was the "cursus honorum" or ladder of honor. The goal being to become "first man in Rome". Certainly Augustus fulfilled Caesar's thinly veiled ambition, which would have included kingship and divinity aka Princeps.
