In 24BC she is said to have held off three cohorts of Roman soldiers sent by Augustus Caesar who ruled Egypt at that time. During the conflict she took several prisoners and statues of Augustus. It is said that she buried the head of one of these statues beneath the threshold of a public building. This was done so that Nubian citizens could trample the head of Augustus Caesar daily.
