After the assassination of Julius Caesar a large comet hit the Earths atmosphere, it was seen in Rome and China, and may have been brightest daylight comet in recorded history, it led to Caesar being Deified, an Imperial Cult, and the building of the ‘Temple of the Comet Star’.
When Julius Caesar died, he left today’s equivalent of about $270 to each and every Roman citizen.
While Caesar and Cato fiercely debated in the Roman Senate over a conspiracy to seize power, a note was delivered to Caesar. Cato alleged this could implicate his involvement, imploring him to read it. He handed it to Cato who read it out loud. It was a lustful love letter from Cato’s sister.
