Roman Calendar: March 15th
A Roman festive day dedicated to the god, MARS, on which a military parade was usually held.
"Beware, the Ides of March"... a phrase best known for its inclusion by Shakespeare in his play, "Julius Caesar", when a seer warned Caesar to be on his guard against great peril on the Ides of March. On his way to the Theater of Pompey, Caesar caught a glance of the seer and joked..."well the Ides of March have come..", to which the seer replied, "Aye, they have come but they are not gone".
Caesar met his death that day, March 15, 44 BC ,when he was stabbed to death in the Roman Senate.
Symbol for MARS
