Augusteum favissa is the first individual thematic exhibition of the Archaeological museum Narona, representing a selection of small archaeological finds recovered in the Augusteum (a Roman temple for an Imperial cult) excavations.

The objects are dated from the late 1st c. BC to the late 3rd c. AD. Some are cultic, deposited in a special store within the cultic complex after being used in a ritual context. Their dates correspond to the period in which the Imperial cult was practiced in the Augusteum. On the contrary, the small finds from the temple cella represent the period of late antiquity, when the Augusteum was used as a late antiquity burial ground.

The objects are displayed in 8 cases, accompanied by bilingual legends, city light and, also bilingual, text boards. Information on the excavation and archaeological situation of the Narona Augusteum are presented on the boards by photographs, illustrations and texts.

The scenography is completed by a video projection of the Augusteum cella with a gallery of imperial statues.
