Petraios – ally of Caesar, executed by Brutus
Established in the 5th century BC, the Thessalian League was a loose confederation of cities and towns on the Thessalian Plains in Greece. By the 1st century BC, the League was under Roman control, and Thessaly played a key role in the Roman civil wars. A strong supporter of Julius Caesar in the conflict with Pompey, the man who authorised the issue of this coin – Petraios – was executed by Caesar’s assassin, Brutus.
