Historic Time. From October 45 B.C. (Cæsar's Triumph), or February 44 B.C. (the Lupercalia) — 1. 1. synchronises the two occasions, cf. v. 35 and 72- to autumn 42 B.C. (battle of Philippi).

Dramatis Persona. First given by Rowe. For Antonius, Marullus, Varro, Claudius, Ff have Antonio, Murellus, Varrus, Claudio, all clearly unauthentic. The name Calpurnia appears always as Calphurnia ; Shakespeare found both forms in Plutarch; it remains uncertain which he wrote. The true form (Calpurnia) is thence adopted by most modern edd.
