Site of Julius Caesar’s Assassination Found
“Archaeologists working in central Rome claim they have located the exact spot where the stabbing of then-dictator Gaius Julius Caesar took place 2,056 years ago. Led by the researcher Antonio Monterroso, experts with the Spanish National Research Council base their assertion on a recently uncovered structure built by Caesar’s successor, Augustus, which he ordered to be built exactly where the attack took place.
Measuring 3 by 2 meters (approximately 10 by 7 feet), the structure sat at the bottom of the Curia of Pompey, a closed space sometimes used for smaller conferences among senators, in the Torre Argentina archaeological site.”
While Julius may have perished, his namesake salad lives on.
