Ancient Coin of the Day: A particularly significant coin today, as it is a denarius of Julius Caesar from 44 BC, bearing his own portrait - complete with laurel wreath - on the Obverse. #ACOTD #Caesar

A senatorial decree, likely from December 45 BC, had voted extraordinary honours upon Caesar, including the title of 'Father of his Country', a title which would be stamped on the coins: πατέρα τε αὐτὸν τῆς πατρίδος ἐπωνόμασαν καὶ ἐς τὰ νομίσματα ἐνεχάραξαν (Dio 44.4.4).
This marked something of a watershed moment in Caesar's coinage, with his own portrait now dominating the Obverse. Here the simple Legend CAESAR·IMP seems very secondary, as do the lituus and culullus placed behind the portrait.

Caesar appears to be all.

"Why I'm here today is because #Russia is perpetrating the most enormous war crimes in #Syria, in order to help the #Assad régime crush and torture the Syrian people."

"My message is that Russia can be beaten. Russia lost in Afghanistan, and in Syria they are in such a mess they don't know how to get out of it. Assad's economy is collapsing, he doesn't have an army that wants to fight for him.

"There are new laws, the #Caesar [Civilian] Protection Act in the #UnitedStates is introducing new sanctions against the régime. His ally #Iran faces protests at home and protests in #Iraq. And Russia will lose."
