Comment:        Re: SHK 14.0447 Re: Julius Caesar's Protagonist

A question about this play, if not exactly in keeping with the theme of
the protagonist:  A number of times throughout the play, Cassius is
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
this case?

Thank you.
