Was a form of victory celebration less lavish and impressive than a triumph. It could be granted to a general who was unable to claim a full triumph, e.g. because his victory had not involved the destruction of a large number of the enemy or because he had handed over his army to a successor. He entered Rome on foot or horseback instead of in a chariot, dressed in a toga praetexta (not picta) and without a sceptre, wearing a wreath of myrtle instead of laurel, and the procession was much less spectacular.
