“The Ides”

March 15th, The Ides.
A date best known as the time a God of Rome met his fate.
Ides comes from the Latin word Idus, which defined the mid days of the month.
On this mid month March day, in 44 B.C., Caesar was assassinated.

Throughout history, March 15th has been left with a mark as deep as Caesar’s stab wounds, forever tainted with the bloody demise of this God like ruler.

How fitting that this God of Rome should succumb to 33 thrusts of the blade, the age when one lance to the side ended the life of a young man hung from the cross.
