Rubicon | Info

The Rubicon ( Latin : Rubicō , Italian : Rubicone pronounced  [rubiˈkone] ) is a shallow river in northeastern Italy , just south of Ravenna . The same name was given to a river that was famously crossed by Julius Caesar in 49 BC. While it has not been proven, some historians agree that the two rivers are indeed one and the same; this was not always the case.
