  4. 4. Tribunician Power <ul><li>Whoever held the Tribunician power plus the greater imperium must be Augustus’ successor, because no-one else was as powerful. Augustus, however, could not give these powers to anyone – he had to persuade the senate to vote them to a person. If this had been done and Augustus had adopted such as person, he had in fact set up a hereditary dynasty. (Which did happen in the case of Tiberius). </li></ul>
