Moreover, Caesar actually suspected him, so that he once said to his friends:
‘What, think ye, doth Cassius want? I like him not over much, for he is much too pale.’ And again, we are told that when Antony and Dolabella were accused to him of plotting revolution, Caesar said:
‘I am not much in fear of these fat, long-haired fellows, but rather of those pale, thin ones,’ meaning Brutus and Cassius.
