This Day in History: -0048-09-28

– Pompey the Great, a celebrated Roman General, experienced a shocking betrayal and brutal murder in Egypt. Upon landing, he was misled to believe he was welcomed, only to be stabbed and beheaded by the men of Pharaoh Ptolemy XIII. His severed head was presented to Julius Caesar to gain favour, who, far from pleased, ordered a respectful burial for his once ally and comrade. 🗡️
