The Julius Caesar Drinking Game: Take a drink every time Caesar uses the Ablative Absolute in De Bello Gallico. (He kinda uses that construction a lot.)

Caesar Salad: Romaine lettuce and croutons dressed with parmesan cheese, Caesar dressing, optional chicken.
Brutus Salad: Similar, but topped with steak, so you have to attack it with a knife. Mix some arugula and radicchio in for that bitter aftertaste
Cassius Salad: Lean and hungry. Use fat-free dressing, only half the cheese, and no croutons. No wonder Cassius resents Caesar's popularity.
Mark Antony Salad: Served with the same Caesar dressing on a rainbow of eye-catching vegetables, this homage to the more popular recipe lacks its elegant simplicity, but will win over fans of the original.
Octavius Caesar Salad: The Caesar salad that you can get from McDonalds.

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.

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.

I'm so glad to discover that I am not the only one who asks "What would Caesar Do?" every day. I'm just upset that I wasn't the one who thought of this blog, aha.


Thank you very much! If you ever have any good ideas for this blog feel free to submit them.

44 BCE

Gaius Julius Caesar is assassinated

So the Classical Calendar, like the Prodigal Son, returns with tail between legs, begging its followers for forgiveness.

And what a date to come back on!

Et tu, Brute? Then fall, Caesar.

So we all know how important Caesar was, and we all…
