Lactating Death Priestess?

This is a shout-out to anyone on my friends list who knows about Roman customs...

I'm watching Rome with Flar. The season starts right after Caesar's assassination in the senate. There is a scene with Calpurnia and a boobyish babe by the body of Caesar. The latter expresses breast milk into the mouth of the corpse. The rest of the scene involves reading Caesar's will, etc. etc.

So, what's the deal with the Lactating Death Priestess?
