According to Mark Antony (Somone we know to be best bros with Octavian) commented that " Julius Caesar made him (Octavian) submit to unnatural relations as the price of adoption" Though it was more likely Octavian was seen in Caesar's favour for other reasons, it is fun to see that the start of the Roman imperial line started with a favour.
