Antipasto Bread and The Ides of March

I made Antipasto Bread today to celebrate the Ides of March.

The Ides of March is the name of the date March 15 in the Roman calendar. The term ides was used for the 15th day of the months of March, May, July, and October. The Ides of March was a festive Day dedicated to the god Mars and a military parade was usually held. In modern times, the term Ides of March is best known as the date that Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 BC. In William Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar, Caesar is warned to "beware the Ides of March." ~Wikipedia
