Caesar’s Soldiers Hail Him “F**ker!” Suetonius, Divus Iulius 51

Suetonius records that Caesar’s soldiers sang this lovely little song during his triumphs awarded to him for his Gallic conquests:

“Citizens, hide your wives! We’ve brought home that bald adulterer! Caesar, you fucked away in Gaul the money which you borrowed here!”

Urbani, servate uxores: moechum calvom adducimus.
Aurum in Gallia effutuisti, hic sumpsisti mutuum.
