St. Julius, and with him St. Aaron, have their room
At Carleon, suffering death by Diocletian’s doom.

Julius Cæsar, an historic traged y by Shakespeare (1601, printed 1623). Julius Cæsar is chosen king of Rome, at the Lúpercal, but, though off ered the crown thrice by Antony, he “did thrice refuse.” However, his friend Brutus, with Cassius, Casca, and others, conspired his death, and murdered him. This gave rise to two factions: the party of Antony, which consisted of Antony, Octavius, and Lepidus: and the party of Brutus. This led to a civil war. At the battle of Philippi Cassius was slain, Brutus killed himself; the triumvirate became masters of Rome.
