Happy b-day you sexy beast of a Caesar! 2113 years young!
Happy Birthday today, July 13th, to Gaius Julius Caesar, Roman General, Statesman, Consul, and far too many other amazing and awesome titles and things to mention.
When Mark Antony dines with the conspirators after the Ides
After Caesar’s assassination on the Ides of March, Mark Antony, Brutus, Cassius, and Lepidus all had dinner together on the Capitoline hill to establish concordia (a compromise). Caesar’s assassins were given amnesty, but his laws and will were recognized in full force.
Posts that are all “HAPPY IDES OF MARCH” are still floating around my dash.
And it kind of peeves me off.
NOT A CELEBRATORY DAY PEOPLE! Don’t make me feed your arses to the crocodiles.
When Caesar was deified
It was like,
In 42 BCE, the Roman senate recognized Julius Caesar as a god. The Sidus Iulius of 44 BCE was proof that he had become a god — a comet so bright it was seen during the daytime in July.
Octavian, therefore, became divi filius — the son of a god. He commenced construction on the Temple of Divus Iulius in the Roman Forum in 42 BCE, and dedicated it in 29 BCE.
Thank you very much! If you ever have any good ideas for this blog feel free to submit them.
