 MARCUS JUNIUS BRUTUS (During this period, also known as Quintus Servilius Caepio Brutus) AR silver denarius. Struck as moneyer, 54 BC. LIBERTAS, head of Libertas right, hair in bun. Reverse - BRVTVS, the consul Lucius Junius Brutus walking left, between two lictors, carrying fasces over their shoulders, and preceded by an accensus. RCV 397. 19.5mm, 3.5g.

A popular issue, clearly showing Brutus' political sentiments a full ten years before Caesar's assassination. The obverse personficiation of Libertas speaks foritself. The reverse type refers to his celebrated ancestor, Lucius Junius Brutus, the first consul and founder of the Republic who expelled the Tarquins from Rome while he held the consulship in 509 BC. Is it any surprise he wasn't fond of despots?
