A propaganda coin with the same obverse as a Marcus Junius Brutus (assasin of Julius Caesar) silver denarius struck in 54 B.C. with his famous ancestor L. Brutus. Koson was an alley of Brutus and this famous coin was indeed minted by Brutus to pay for his army. In roman times, was the custom that army demanded payment right away after the battle. Payment was more important than looting of bodies. If payment wasn’t made after battle, army would riot. For this very reason, armies carried gold bars between 2-4 pounds each. Many times they would call allies to contribute with gold or silver bars. They had their moving mint within the army. They would start mining coins as soon as they camped.
