Reconstruction of a bust of a Roman leader - Julius Caesar
Reconstruction of a bust of a Roman leader - Julius Caesar

For enemies, Julius Caesar even calendar reform was an excuse to show dissatisfaction. Once, Caesar, leaving Rome, left a decree with orders for his deputies (as he usually did).

When one of the inhabitants noticed that tomorrow the constellation Lyra (also called Lute) would appear in the sky, the great speaker Cicero was supposed to mockingly say, “Yes, by decree”, which he referred to the fact that all Caesar’s decrees were immediately implemented.
