Julius Caesar and the 11-Day Parade: The Show Notes

Become a Patron!

Here’s the episode where we talk about the elephant battle with King Juba and Scipio in more depth.

We relied on these modern sources:

Stacy Schiff’s Cleopatra: A Life

Adrian Goldsworthy’s Caesar: Life of a Colossus

Patricia Southern’s Julius Caesar: A Life

Jack Johnson’s Ambition without Boundaries: How Julius Caesar’s Thirst for Conquest Shaped the Ancient World, and Impacted the Modern One

Here’s that article about Julius Caesar’s “epilepsy.”

And our ancient sources include:

Plutarch’s Parallel Lives (Bernadotte Perrin translation):

Life of Caesar
Life of Pompey
Life of Cicero
Life of Cato

Suetonius’ Twelve Caesars: Life of Caesar (J.C. Rolfe translation)

Cassius Dio’s Roman History (Earnest Cary translation)

And of course, Cicero’s Letters to Friends.
