The Ides of March (Latin: Idus
Martii) is the name of the 15th day of March in theRoman
calendar, probably referring to the day of the full moon. The word Ides
comes from the Latin word "Idus" and means "half division" especially in
relation to a month. It is a word that was used widely in the Roman calendar
indicating the approximate day that was the middle of the month. The term ides was used for the 15th day of the months of
March, May, July, and October, and the 13th day of the other months. The Ides of March was a festive day
dedicated to the god Mars and a military parade was usually held.

prophecy had not been fulfilled, to which the seer replied "Ay, Caesar; but not
gone." This meeting is famously dramatized in William
Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar,
when Caesar is warned by the soothsayer to "beware the Ides of March."
