The Ides of March

Julius Caesar was assassinated at the foot of a statue of Pompey, where the Senate was meeting, on the 15th of March 44 B.C. Caesar was stabbed 23 times by a group of conspirators led by Marcus Brutus and Cassius. The group included another 60 co-conspirators. Before Caesar went to the theatre to attend the Senate meeting, he had been given advice by a soothsayer informing him not to go, but Caesar did not listen. A soothsayer bids you beware of the ides of March.
