Comment: Re: SHK 14.0447 Re: Julius Caesar's Protagonist
A question about this play, if not exactly in keeping with the theme of

referred to as Brutus' brother. Now, it's interesting that Brutus is
never referred to as Cassius' brother (at least not that I can recall --
and my text is not at hand).
Were they blood brothers, or was "brother" being used as an honorific in
