"BEWARE THE IDES OF MARCH"

Today is the "Ides of March",
notorious as the date of the 
assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 B.C.

This silver Roman coin
was issued by Caesar's assassin, Brutus,
2 years later, in 42 B.C.
inscribed with EID MAR (Ides of March)
under the Cap of Freedom
between two daggers.

March 15.
Always a date best advised
to be careful!

(Today is also the date
for the St. Patrick's Day Parade.
And the weather forecast is GOOD.)
