According to some sources, Caesar, seeing among the conspirators Brutus, was to exclaim, “You too, child?”. Was it really so, we are not sure. However, even if in fact it was so, we are not sure which Brutus – of the two involved in the plot – would be addressed.
In addition to the well-known Marcus Junius Brutus – which was considered to be the addressee – Decimus Brutus was among Caesar’s killers – also a close friend of Caesar. He was even mentioned in his will as a second degree heir.
