    The Senate, Mark Antony, and Caesar's Legislative Legacy.John T. Ramsey - 1994 - Classical Quarterly 44 (1):130-145.
    This paper seeks to dispel the notion that Mark Antony and the Senate indulged in a cat-and-mouse game over the control of Caesar's archives in the weeks immediately following the Ides of March. At stake was whether unpublished documents drawn up by Caesar before his death should be ratified and put into force. The belief that the Senate and Antony contended over this issue and that Antony got the upper hand rests primarily on what I hope to show is a (...)

    'Beware the Ides of March!': An Astrological Prediction?John T. Ramsey - 2000 - Classical Quarterly 50 (02):440-.
    This paper will examine the circumstances that inspired the famous utterance attributed to the haruspex Spurinna, ‘Beware the Ides of March!'1 Recently the argument has been made that this warning to Caesar was based upon an astrological calculation, rather than on the usual arts of an haruspex who read signs of the future by inspecting the entrails of sacrificial animals or by interpreting bolts of lightning and portents . As intriguing as this astrological theory is, I am convinced that it (...)

    The Recovery Of More Ennius From A Misinformed Ciceronian Scholiast.John T. Ramsey - 2014 - Classical Quarterly 64 (1):160-165.
    The aim of this paper is to propose a new and more satisfactory context for a fragment from one of Ennius’ tragedies preserved in Cicero and discussed by a late scholiast on the Ciceronian passage. It will be shown that the scholiast, or more likely the source upon which he drew, had in front of him a bit more of the Ennian passage than the partial line preserved in Cicero and that the scholiast drew a false conclusion concerning the identity (...)
