The site of Julius Caesar’s assassination: the Theatre of Pompey in Rome.
“When he saw that he was beset on every side by drawn daggers, he muffled his head in his robe, and at the same time drew down its lap to his feet with his left hand, in order to fall more decently, with the lower part of his body also covered. And in this wise he was stabbed with three and twenty wounds, uttering not a word, but merely a groan at the first stroke, though some have written that when Marcus Brutus rushed at him, he said in Greek, “You too, my child?”
All the conspirators made off, and he lay there lifeless for some time, and finally three common slaves put him on a litter and carried him home, with one arm hanging down.”
-Roman historian Suetonius in The Lives of the Twelve Caesars 1.82.2-4 (trans. Rolfe).
The Theatre of Pompey was one of the first permanent theatres in Rome, and was dedicated in 55 BC during the late Republic. It was commissioned by Pompey primarily was a way to gain political popularity during his second consulship, and was inspired by his visit to a Greek theatre in Mytilene.
