“Beware the Ides of March.” The Ides of March is a date notorious for the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 B.C, corresponding to modern calendars as March 15th. Ancient authors reference the dagger used by Marcus Brutus to stab Caesar as a pugio, other contemporary writings of the time agree that all conspirators made the pugio their weapon of choice for the assassination of Caesar, some later even killing themselves with the same weapon they put to their dictator's throat. The pugio dagger was a favorite amongst high ranking military for assassinations or suicide, due to it’s easy concealability in Roman robes.
