"Beware the Ides of March" It is said that a soothsayer warned

Caesar ahead of time of the date of his assassination on 15 March

44 BC, known as the Ides of March, an auspicious day in the Roman

calendar. The phrases "Beware the Ides of March" and "Et tu, Brut?"

(denoting the ultimate in betrayal from a friend) from

Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar', are two of the most remembered lines

of any of Shakespeare's plays.
