Note 089
From Chapter 13 of the Decline & Fall

Julius Caesar was reproached with the intention of removing the empire to Ilium or Alexandria. See Suetonius in Caesar c. 79. According to the ingenious conjecture of Le Fevre and Dacier, the third ode of the third book of Horace was intended to divert Augustus from the execution of a similar design.
