In this episode, we’re dealing with events around 18 BCE:

The most important innovation Aug created around this time was his new small council, the consilium principis (advisers to the princeps).

Another thing he did to reduce the numbers of the Senate was to raise the amount of wealth you had to have from 400,000 sesterces to a million. 

Livia’s younger son, Drusus, was made quaestor. 

Tiberius finally marries Vipsania, Agrippa’s daughter to his first wife Attica.

And Augustus married his only daughter to his best friend.
