Julius Cæsar (100–44 B.C.)

Cæsar, Caius Julius (sē’zar). The great Roman general and writer of memoirs; was born 102 B.C.; assassinated March 15, 44 B.C. He wrote ‘Commentaries’ or notes on all his wars, but those on the wars in Gaul and those on the Civil War alone remain. Besides the ‘Commentaries,’ he wrote a grammatical treatise ‘On Analogy,’ but it has not come down to us; of his orations, too, no example is extant. (See Critical and Biographical Introduction).
