Quick Reference

Daughter of Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus, married Caesar in 59 bc, cementing an alliance between her husband and father. Though Caesar considered divorcing her to marry Pompey's daughter in 53, her affection for him was great, and she attempted to keep him from the senate on the Ides of March. After the murder she handed his papers and 4,000 talents to Marcus Antonius (Mark Antony).
