Today they have learned that the word "ides" was originally one of several common calendar terms used to mark monthly lunar events.
Later it came to mark the mid-point of a month. The Romans considered it to be an important day in their calendar. The word ides comes from the Latin meaning "half division". Every month had its ides: the 15th day of March, May, July or October, or the 13th day of any other month.
