    This is a Roman "triumph": en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_triump h Will open in a new tab or window "On the day of his triumph, the general wore regalia that identified him as near-divine or near-kingly. He rode in a chariot through the streets of Rome in unarmed procession with his army and the spoils of his war (the armor being held aloft). At Jupiter's temple on the Capitoline Hill he offered sacrifice and the tokens of his victory to the god. Thereafter he had the right to be described as vir triumphalis ("man of triumph", later known as triumphator) for the rest of his life." The painting takes some liberties with the actual order of march. Here is the processional order: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_triump h#Processional_order_and_rites Will open in
