The Tyrannicides - Assassins of Julius Caesar
Kings of Thrace, Kotys and Rhaescuporis I, c. Late Summer of 42 B.C., Struck by Brutus(?)

|Kingdoms| |of| |Thrace|, |Kings| |of| |Thrace,| |Kotys| |and| |Rhaescuporis| |I,| |c.| |Late| |Summer| |of| |42| |B.C.,| |Struck| |by| |Brutus(?)||AE| |16|
In late summer of 42 B.C., Brutus struck aureus and denarius types (Crawford 505/4 and Crawford 505/5) with trophy reverses very similar to the reverse of this coin. This type, struck in the names of King Kotys and King Rhaescuporis of Thrace, may have actually been struck by Brutus too. Perhaps it was used for small change in the camps of Thracian mercenaries. Brutus was defeated at Philippi in October.

Roman Republic, M. Junius Brutus, Ides of March, Fourree Denarius, c. 43 - 42 B.C.

|The| |Tyrannicides|, |Roman| |Republic,| |M.| |Junius| |Brutus,| |Ides| |of| |March,| |Fourree| |Denarius,| |c.| |43| |-| |42| |B.C.||denarius|
With this famous type Brutus commemorated his assassination of Julius Caesar on the notorious Ides of March, 44 BC, and claimed that the deed was done to secure liberty for the Roman people (the liberty cap). This coin is a contemporary strike from unofficial dies, in competent style but with an engraver's error in the obverse legend, PIAET for PLAET. In his corpus of EID MAR denarii H. A., Cahn lists five such unofficial plated specimens, namely two in Paris and three in auction catalogues. The specimen that he illustrates, ex Muenzhandlung Basel 6, 1936, 1485, is from the same dies as this coin.
