Subject:        Who Was the Historical Decius Brutus?

I'm working on an online edition of Julius Caesar, and wonder if
Shakespeare could have known anything about Decius Brutus except what he
read in North's Plutarch.

Also, I've Googled and Yahooed, but can't find anything about the
historical Decius Brutus, so I'm hoping that someone on the list could
refer me to a book that would provide some information about this
person, especially why he shares a name with Marcus Brutus.

Sincerely,
Philip Weller Shakespeare Navigators http://www.clicknotes.com
