Roman Republic, First Triumvirate, M. Junius Brutus (Q. Caepio Brutus), 54 B.C., Ancient Counterfeit
|The| |Tyrannicides|, |Roman| |Republic,| |First| |Triumvirate,| |M.| |Junius| |Brutus| |(Q.| |Caepio| |Brutus),| |54| |B.C.,| |Ancient| |Counterfeit|, M. Junius Brutus (also called Q. Caepio Brutus) is the most famous of Caesars assassins. Many of Brutus' coins honor his ancestors and illustrate his strong republican views. The obverse honors L. Junius Brutus, the consul who in 509 B.C. forced the expulsion of the Tarquin Kings from Rome and founded the Republic. The reverse honors Gaius Servilius Ahala, who threw Spurius Maelius down from the Tarpeian rock to his death for plotting against the Republic and aspiring to tyranny. Caesar should not have been surprised by Brutus!
