The Ides of March is one of the most famous dates from Roman history. It is not just about the assassination of Julius Caesar. It is also about the fall of the Republic and the subsequent one-man rule of Rome by Caesar‘s heir, Octavian (later changing his name to Augustus). What led to the conspiracy of Caesar‘s fellow senators? The conspirators killed him in the senate hall (in the Theater of Pompey) but they considered other locations and moments, before Caesar departed for a new war against the Parthians. Join Darius Arya for a live conversation on the Ides of March, the inaugural Ancient Rome Live online seminar.
