In Morozov (1) on p. 379 in chapter IV-IV is going about eclipse mentioned in Ovidius.

Ovidius in his own "Methamorphoses" (2), (3, 31) writes about Sun eclipse by Caesar's death:

"And sad image of Sun brought to exited grounds weak shining only".

To regret we can find too many eclipses passing for this description whether we don't know the year of caesar's death.

 According to traditional history he died in 44BC. From 50BC to 33BC there were no Sun eclipses visible from Roma and Constantinopol.

 Once more this eclipse is described in Josephus Flavii, Virgilius "Georgici", Tibull, Plutarch, Cedrenos, Aurelius Victor and Servii.
