    Caesar or Augustus, which was the greatest (or greater) Roman?

    I tend to think Caesar was. Augustus founded the Empire, or at least formalise the new constitution. But without Caesar, who was obviously his great-uncle and inheritor, there would have been no legacy to build on to create the Principate.
