It was the ides of March when a meeting of the Senate was called. Caesar hesitated and put off going to the Senate meeting until the last moment. He commented to the soothsayer saying that the ides of March had come without him being harmed. The soothsayer replied that they had indeed come, "but they had not gone." As he entered the meeting, all seemed well and ordinary. One consul approached him as if to ask a question. All at once Julius Caesar was seized and stabbed 23 times. The assassination was a conspiracy concocted by his own friends and consuls. Over 60 people were involved in the conspiracy leading to Julius Caesar's death.
