One of often claims Atticus’ genealogy of the Bruti as one of the ‘affirmations’ of the relationship between Brutus the first consul and Brutus the murderer of Caesar, implying that the young Brutus of 54BC might have had a hand in ‘renewing’ this connection via his relationship with Atticus as well as his coinage (RRC 433).
