      The article focuses on the use of island exile as a form of punishment in Rome. According to the author, the exile of Julia, daughter of Augustus, and her lovers was the first account of exile to a specific place in Rome. Furthermore, Augustus' decision to send Julia to Pandateria, now known as Ventontene, became the known island for exiles. It also mentions that exile was not seen as a punishment, but a way of escaping one. It explores the meaning of deportatio, and the practice of exile during the Republican period.
