The Ides of March

“You may have heard the phrase “beware the Ides of March,” but

what is an Ides and what’s there to fear? The Ides is actually a

day that comes about every month, not just in March—according

to the ancient Roman calendar, at least. The Romans tracked time

much differently than we do now, with months divided into

groupings of days counted before certain named days: the

Kalends at the beginning of the month, the Ides at the middle, and

the Nones between them. In a 31-day month such as March, the

Kalends was day 1, with days 2–6 being counted as simply

“before the Nones.” The Nones fell on day 7, with days 8–14

“before the Ides” and the 15th as the Ides. Afterward the days were

counted as “before the Kalends” of the next month. In shorter

months these days were shifted accordingly.

You have probably heard of the Ides of March, however, because

it is the day Roman statesman Julius Caesar was assassinated.

The immortal words “Beware the Ides of March” are uttered in

William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar to the leader by a fortuneteller.

Other bad things have happened on March 15, of course,

but there’s probably no reason to beware March’s Ides more than

the Ides of any other month.”
