The emperor Augustus badly wounded by lack of proofing

A lesser known incident from Suetonius’ ‘Life of Augustus’: “He was wounded in the former of these wars; in one battle he received a contusion in the right knee from a stone and in another, he was much hurt in one leg and both arms, by the fall of a fridge.”
