Adlocutio

In ancient Rome, an adlocutio was an address by a general (usually the emperor) to his massed army and a general salute from the army to their leader. It is often portrayed in sculpture, either simply as a single, life-size contraposto figure of the general with his arm outstretched (such as the Prima Porta Augustus), or a relief scene of the general on a podium addressing the army. Such relief scenes also frequently appear on imperial coinage.
