Why is this Creator and not Useful Notes?

Most likely because his Commentaries are a famous piece of literature. Also, I believe the page was created before the Useful Notes section existed. At the time, a Creator page on the Authors index seemed the most appropriate place to put Caesar. I don't see any benefit to changing it.

Given the lengthy section on his life, as well as tropes associated with the man, this is clearly a Useful Notes page in all but name.

But is it worth the trouble of moving it to the appropriate section?

Anyone read Colleen Mc Cullough's the Masters of Rome series? Caesar was my favorite character by far in them. Sulla was decent, but he let himself slip too far and Octavian came across as a bit of an ass sometimes.

His wife was Cinilla not Cornelia, but if Cinna's middle name were Corelius, it would work.

The decree did Not downgrade Cinilla from Aristo to Peasant; it downgraded her from Citizen to Barbarian
