Also called Sebastos and Octavianus, [wrote] On his own life and deeds [in] 13 books,[1] and a tragedy of Ajax and Achilles.[2]
"Augustus, in accordance with his own decree, counts individually all the inhabitants of Roman [lands], wanting to know how great a multitude they are. And the inhabitants of the Roman [empire] are found to be 4,101,017 men."[3]

[1] Again at kappa 1197.
[2] See Suetonius, Augustus 83 (web address 1), where the story is told that, when Augustus was asked what his Ajax was doing, he replied, "He fell on his sponge".
[3] On the Augustan census figures see generally P.A. Brunt, Italian Manpower 225 BC-AD 14 (Oxford 1971) 113-120. The present figure -- in this unidentifiable quotation -- is in general line with the ones in the Res Gestae and elsewhere (4,063,000 in 28 BCE; 4,233,000 in 8 BCE; 4,937,000 or [Fasti Ostienses] 4,100,900 in 14 CE) but is, as we see, fascinatingly more precise.
