I think the most important achievement that Augustus accomplished was to create peace. He mentions this fact in sections 12 and 13. This is an important point to make for two reasons. First, Rome for a few generations have been in civil war. Imagine the destruction to life and property! The Romans were devastated by other Romans. So, what people wanted more than anything else was peace. Augustus was able to provide. Second, it was on account of peace that Augustus was able to do so many other things, such as revive religion, build temples and reconstruct Roman civilization. He wanted people to know this about him. In my opinion, I would agree with Augustus. The most important thing he accomplished was to create a stable government. What can we do without peace?
