Many theories are out there but no one knows for sure Augustus’ daughter Julia was banished at about this same time for her over the top promiscuous lifestyle and we know that Ovid’s writings definitely promoted that sort of thing Of course she took it to the extreme He was even asked by the emperor to “clean it up” Of course he refused So did Augustus blame him for his daughter’s behavior? Was he directly involved as one of her paramours? Who knows What we do know is that Ovid hated Tomis He looked down his nose on the rubes he was now living amongst But they saw him as a celebrity They practically worshipped him and wanted nothing than to cater
